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.

Aqua dress

Another found gem from goodwill. Loved the color hated the dress.

Here's the back

The zipper only went to the waist and the rest of the dress buttoned. EEEEEK!!!

After thinking about it, I decided I just wanted to keep the skirt portion of the dress. It was high waisted and pencil shaped. I could work with it.

I took out me seam ripper and detached the top from the skirt.

I folded down the top and hemmed it down.

I put it on my dress form and took it in some and hemmed up the bottom.

Done!

Yeah it needs some ironing but I love this skirt and it is not black. So now I have some color in my wardrobe. And it is work appropriate! Yay!
