Refashion a summer dress into a strapless top
I picked this little summer dress to refashion
|Short Roxy dress|
What do you think of the cute plastic heart on the back? I know I too thought it was... special.
First thing first, I chopped that off!
|I'm having a flash back from the 80's|
Next I cut the top part away from the elastic, leaving about an inch seam allowance. But when I cut the top part away I fount that the original top was double layered. So I left the two raw edges sticking up and I stretched them apart. This makes the fabric curl in a way that I love. It gave the top a bit of a ruffle, with out having to spend the time to make a ruffle! I like it. It is pretty slimming in my post baby belly area and I can nurse the baby in this top! What do you think? This was so fast and easy. I hope you like it and give it a try.
