Stripes, Flowers & Strawberries

The weather outside has been beautiful, so I decided to make a spring-y piece. I decided to use this dress that my aunt gave me ages ago [10+ years.] I wanted to keep this project simple, and since the dress was so long, I decided I could make it into a shirt AND a dress.

First step, cut in half, or close to it…I ended up cutting it too short for the shirt portion, but it shall be salvaged!

To make the dress, I flipped the bottom portion inside out and made it a bit tighter–but still loose enough to slip past my shoulders and hips. Then, I attached elastic to the back half.

I folded the fabric to hide the elastic and sewed it shut. Then, I took a ribbon from a different dress I had to make a sash. I went to Thai Temple [food fundraiser after their service] and then to Parksdale Farm with some friends. Food coma & sugar overload = one successful Sunday :]
