i loved the fabric on this dress. but those long sleeves just had to go. i attempted to refashion this dress this past winter and it was a big. fat. FAIL. I wanted to keep the sleeves since it was winter but wanted to update it a little. i used some elastic to try to gather the sides up but it was more annoying then anything. i thought it might look better without the sleeves so that’s where i headed with this one.
i used seam rippers to remove the sleeves at the seams and then repined in place.
took it to the sewing machine…
wait. what the??!!!! i don’t wear tights!!! do you see those pale chicken legs?! wow! i knew i needed some sun, but this is ridiculous!! i had to do a double take when i was editing these pictures, that is just embarrassing!
HA! i hope your enjoy your Monday!!
