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.

White ruffle dress

I loved this dress when I bought it back a few years ago. I loved the white and the ruffles.


But I never seemed to wear it and always opted for another dress. I just never felt completely comfortable wearing it, I think I know why


It is short but that back slit goes right to my bum!!! I never felt comfortable wearing it, I could barely move in it.

Instead I decided to hem it and make it a shirt. It would get much more use out of it for work.

It had a back zipper and fit well. The zipper was long I basically opted to go about 2 inches from it and marked it with some pins. I hemmed it there. Before that I took out my seam ripped and undid the ruffle up to the point at which it was going to be cut. I saved that baby for later! :)


Here is the finished product

It would be great with a cardigan and jacket for work. Yay!

XOXOXOXO,
Lauren

well how smart is that!? I have a dress that is too short for me too and THAT is exactly what I'm going to head off and do - maybe right this second! Thanks for linking up to WWWW!

I like it so much more as a blouse! Good job.

This is so flattering as a top instead of a dress.
