I realized I hadn't posted in a while and was feeling something new was in order for the weekend. So Saturday night I picked out a dress that I knew I could do something with quickly.
I was given this dress sort of as a hand-me-down. It was pretty just as it was but I've talked to you before long dresses on a short lady. It just doesn't work out well. Plus, it's kind of boring and needed a little sumpin' sumpin'.
The first thing I did was cut the skirt in half. That is actually all I did to the dress. The fabric won't fray and didn't need hemming so I just cut a straight line across the skirt at the length I wanted.
As I mentioned, thought, it needed a bit more. So I decided to make a flower I could pin to the dress. I pulled out the yellow skirt that provided the sleeves for a recent project. I just love the color!
I cut out a strip of fabric and proceeded to create a flower.
I sewed a brown button in the center of the flower then pinned it to the dress. It was the perfect dress for a very hot Sunday!
Thanks for stopping by :)
