So I think I can officially say that this is one of my favorite refashions yet! I wish the lighting was better and could do it justice!
I ended up noticing that Joann’s was having some patterns on sale over the weekend so I browsed all of McCall’s, Butterick, and Vogue and found this gem.
McCall’s 6331 –
I modified the bodice to eliminate the dart because I didn’t want to worry about the stripes not lining up. I also just used the back as a guide because I wanted to keep the button down back style from the original dress. I kept the original skirt just took in the sides a smidge and replaced the elastic.
So here’s the original oversized monster. I picked it up a long time ago from St. Vincent’s for $3. So even with buying the pattern at $1.99 the whole dress still cost just about 5 bucks!!
