I retired this dress from my closet to my refash pile several years ago. I wore this dress a billions times because I loved it so much, but I finally got tired of it. I recently found it in my refash pile and fell in love with it again! It just needed an update!
I decided to tie the top of the dress into the bottom of the dress by adding blue bias tape to the neckline and arm holes.
Then I wanted to shorten this dress so I marked where I wanted my new hem to to end.
I cut and and hemmed the bottom!
Now I have a leftover piece of fabric.
I draped this leftover piece of fabric across the shoulders.
Showed off my new dress in Frankenmuth, MI on the 4th of July!
