I actually finished this refashion I think over a month ago, but I had some trouble transferring the images to my computer, so here it is at last. My very first refashion was to turn a very pretty child’s floral dress into a skirt for myself. I bought the skirt in my favourite fill a bag op shop for a song because I loved the beautiful print.
We (being my mum & I who very kindly helped me with my refashion) cut the dress just under the sleeves, put interfacing on the waistband, then turned the waistband over and unpicked the zipper and replaced it with a smaller zipper. The end result was a very pretty skirt that I have worn to work several times. I had wanted a sort of a 1950’s spring garden wedding inspired feeling and I really liked the waisted style of the skirt, which has come back in.
