Earlier this year I helped a sweet lady clean out her closet. She gave me the bags to donate, and I looked through them before donating everything. I picked out this fantastic black dress. The only problem? HUGE 80’s sleeves. I liked the fit of the dress, but the sleeves had to go. So I unpicked them, cut out some new ones, and sewed them back on. I struggle with sleeves though, and threw this dress across the room a couple of times just to get the sleeves to fit. I really should have had this dress done ages ago, but I kept getting exasperated and putting it at the bottom of my to-do pile.
I really like the dress now. And like that I feel flattered with room to grow, but I didn’t have to buy or make this dress! It’s cut on the bias so it drapes so well. That’s what I was trying to show you in the second picture. (Oh and my hair was cute this morning, but after work a crazy, big windstorm blew in and blew up my hair. I didn’t feel like fixing it for the pictures, so you’ll just have to ignore me and look at the dress.)
Have you done any refashions lately?
