Well hi welcome to my little blog. Just my little corner of craftiness, sewing, and refashioning. I am also a newly gluten free eater so you have a little bit of recipes mixed in here.

Easiest Refashion Ever! Garment bag!

Greetings!I have now returned from an adventure in D.C. for ASBMB's Hill Day where for the day I was a Science Policy Advocate. I always have so much fun! I was fighting a horrible cold (and still am!) in the cooler DC weather and little sleep. Not to mention the "fun" I had in Atlanta's Airport!

So I started off with this hawaiian "dress" its basically a loose tank dress. There is ZERO shape to it!

Now I thought about what I wanted to do with it and then it hit me! Its Hula Season fast approaching for us performers/entertainers. Usually I just tote my hula skirt on a hanger but I don't have a garment bag for it and I have always wanted to make one just haven't been able to find pretty hawaiian fabric. So I decided to use this dress and turn it into a garmet bag for my hula skirt!

All I did was sew right across from the armholes (leaving room for hangers to come through) backstitched to ensure it wouldn't come apart I didn't need to sew the sides b/c they were already done and this dress is basically a box!

Cut off the excess material. Turn the right side out. And Ta-Da! Done! Easy peasy! 10 mins!

So here's the skirt i wear

Now here it is covered! It was the perfect width and length, I could not have asked for anything more!

Here's to a easy refashion! Ahola!
