Day 1 – I made this dress from Simplicity 7072. I love the simple retro shape with a fun gingham print! I didn’t like the darts so I used a different pattern in order to make princess seams which created a much nicer fit!
The orange gingham dress goes perfect with the new apron I whipped up with an aqua checked fabric from my stash.
Day 2 – Altered yet another $1 thrifted dress
Looks quite a bit better after losing almost a couple feet off the hem.
Day 3 – Cut this size 18 dress in half and attached the skirt to a simple black tank. I got the dress from Goodwill for a buck and it even has the original tag for $84.
I want to do something with the top half of this dress as its like the softest cotton ever! I also have plans for the bottom half of the tank I used to update the dress.
Tomorrow I’ll be posting the next three days of Self-Stitched September and so on…
Thanks for your patience with my MIA posting. I just started my last semester of nursing school and things are a bit stressed.September 6, 2010
