I have been really inspired by mixing 2 different dresses together to make 1 new dress. So that is what I have for you today!
Let me begin by saying that I LOVE this dress for it’s pattern! However I DO NOT like that I look like a sausage stuffed into it’s casing. This needs a refash STAT!
This style of dress has actually become my favorite! I love the neckline and the fullness of the skirt. I always feel so feminine in these dresses! But this dress is kinda of dull being just plain black, although the dress does have a nice embossed fabric.
Okay, so I started by dismantling the black dress. I separated the top from the bottom and separated the sleeves.
Now to incorporate the 1st dress…
I obviously wanted to keep the skirt portion of the black dress so I kept the top portion of the colorful dress to attach to the black skirt. I cut the 1st dress at the waistline. Then I attached this to the black skirt of the 2nd dress.
Almost done putting these dresses together…
I kept the sleeves from the black dress and stitched them onto the straps of the patterned top. And that completed this dress! Easy Peasy!
I just love this new dress!!
