I don’t wear dresses very often so I’m always looking for new ways to use them up. I think this is one of the simplest ways to refashion a dress.
I started with this dress.
I used the measuring guide on my sewing machine to get a straight line of stitching.
I cut the dress just under the stitching.
I tried it on for length and did the same again to get the best length for me.
Next, I marked and machined the hem.
The dress becomes useful at last.
