I'm weeks away from giving birth! As much as I love sewing/refashioning, I am just too tired and uncomfortable to do anymore. So here is probably the last sewing/refashioning project before the new baby arrives.
I bought this wool mix turtleneck long dress for a few dollars from a thrift store 2 months ago. I was mighty pleased in finding this dress! The dress is too long for me (down to my ankles) and the turtleneck was too tight (actually all turtlenecks are tight on my short neck). I just want a simple black wool sweater dress that I can wear in the office with my jewelry creations (the black showcases the jewelry very well!).
1. Chop off the dress from the knee down. Hem the bottom edge.
2. Measure and mark the eventual neckline of the dress.
3. Cut a piece from the remnant of a wine colour sweater (from the 3 tone sweater dress project) and attached it to the neckline.
4. Cut off the turtleneck.
5. Voila! Another easy refashioning.I think the wine colour neckline gives the dress a little pizzazz but still keeps the overall look muted.
And I still have lots of fabric left over from this dress for another project.
p.s. It's just so difficult to take a good picture of this dress on me while I'm 9 months pregnant. Perhaps I'll take another picture after giving birth.
