This refash starts with a sailor themed dress. I almost did not take this home with me because I thought it was too ‘costumey’. I thought better of it and took it home anyway!
Oh lord I look like I could be in the Navy!
Those sleeve have got to go!
I had to pull out the old stretched out elastic.
Used my bodkin to thread through my new stretchy elastic!
I took in the sides by 1 1/2 inches.
Took 5 inches off the bottom.
Made a new 1 1/2 inch hem. This was not very easy, the pleates made it very difficult!
Time to finish off the arm holes! I used black bias tape to break up the ocean of blue!
Now no sailor’s uniform is complete without gold buttons!
Ready for a night out!
