Just lately Mara and I had fun working on a dress makeover together. We had been given a sundress (which was cute but we don't like things without sleeves) and a bright pink t-shirt. They both were in nice condition (though the hem had been taken out of the t-shirt) and we decided that they coordinated well enough to put them together. So we did!I cut the top off of the sundress, and a couple of inches off the bottom of the shirt. and then sewed them together. I was happy with how well the size matched.
Then I decided it would be fun to make little fabric flowers to help tie the whole dress together. From the top that I had cut off, I cut a strip 1" by 18" and ran a gathering thread on one edge. Then I gathered it up.
Tea Rose Home. She has made some beautiful redone t-shirts and I hope to try some of her ideas soon.
What have you been making lately?
