Hello Readers. How are you doing? 2020 is a wild year so far and we still have 6 months to go. It was like we all said, "Happy New Year!" and chaos started raining down from the heavens. I don't have any words of wisdom to correct and heal all our problems. What can one middle-aged suburban mom do? For now I am trying to learn more and to love my neighbor as myself.
Are you ready for a no sew refashion project? Because this dress doesn't require any sewing.
This maxi skirt is just way too long on me. I think my daughter handed it down to me. (She's tall.) It was full cut and loose. I used that fullness to make it into a dress.
I cut openings in the wide waistband for my arms. The waistband made wide shoulder straps.
(That means I can wear a real bra! YEA!)
I also cut it a lot shorter. That little belt is actually the hem from the bottom of the skirt. The belt helps give the dress shape. Any belt would work for this.
*** Optional Sewing ***
I used some narrow black trim to finish the hem.This isn't required. I did it just for fun. This knit material wont fray. It can be left as a raw cut edge if you want.
I am ready for a sunny summer day. This dress is really comfortable. I actually slept in it and got up the next day and walked my dog in it too. So versatile!
Thanks for reading along, now go make something fun for yourself.
