dress refashion

Before:

It's weird looking, very long, but free so I had it sitting around for a while. 

After:



There was a lot of funky things going on with those sleeves.  It was going to just have spaghetti straps, but I wanted to try and do something with the original sleeves.  I don't even remember how I got those things on!  They're not very comfortable, either, and I had to put little straps in back to keep them on my arms. 

But, for all that, I think it looks cute!  And you have to love that it was free! lol

  9. It's lovely! I'm so impressed with your ability to do this, I wish I could do it. I'm flummoxed by how to make my baggy pants have less rear-end and more waist.
