I’ve been inspired by A dress a day blog.
This lady is buying a $1 second hand dress a day and altering it to make a new garment. She is purely genius in what she comes up with.
Well I’m going to alter a top that I’ve had in my wardrobe for ages but I really didn’t like the way it looked on me…..
really it makes me look preggy again. Been there done that and I don’t want to look that way anymore… ***don’t trust sales people that tell you – ” you look fine!”**** If you are not sure, don’t buy it.
Anyway I altered it….
first of all I cut the front shorter by about 2 -3 inches.
the back I cut in a semi circle as before but cut it shorter.
fold and pin some tucks/pleats in the front both sides even
pin the same way on the back.
top sew the pinned sections – sorry the camera couldn’t pick it up that well
sew the hem of the top to finish off.
gone preggy look. HELLO talored look.
and the back view…. sorry about the dirty mirror – really should get back to my housework now.
thanks for popping by and having a look. Please comment. I’d love to hear from you.
