The first one I decided to attack was to alter a stripy dress I'd bought from a charity shop last year. I loved the colour and stripes but the shape didn't really suit me..Stick of rock anyone?
I cut off part of the bottom, using the stripes as a guide and hand stitched (as I don't have a machine needle for jersey fabric yet) the hem whist watching tv!
|L-R The original dress, now after cutting off a big piece can be worn either as a shorter dress or as a skirt!|
In fact I have the large off-cut to make into something else - so will have a play around with that..any ideas?
|Off-cut - what shall I make with this?|
