First good bye sleeves and mini shoulder pads.
Fixed the armholes.
Now this dress is another homemade dress. They didn't even close the elastic casing!
I wanted to leave the elastic since it will help distribute the dress even if I wear a belt. To my disgust I found this!
Cut that off and took off more of the elastic to better fit my waist.
Next... the length! Like always I start with pinning the front and back together so I can attempt to cut a straight line.
Then make my marks..
Cut off and then fold over 2X and sew!
The end result is here
I love this dress. I paired it with my belt and it just fits great! I do have to wear a slip underneath b/c it is sort of see-thru especially with a camera flash. Now the dress is just right. So 37 more days to go! Check out the other posts of my 60 day project here.
