I stumbled on this dress at a thrift store. I loved the maxi length, the colors, and the ruffles at the neckline. And it was 3 bucks. What I wasn’t dig’n were the long sleeves or the ruffle at the bottom of the dress.
I used seam rippers to remove the sleeves and the ruffled bottom. Then pinned the new seams in place and set them with my iron.
Took it to the sewing machine, and 5 minutes later had a new dress!
