The dress was marked $15.00 and it was on sale for 25% off. SOLD! This was a nice dress as is and it was brand new. I took it home and my daughter was like, "why are you going to cut it up?" I said "to see what I could do with it not for you to wear as it is." So that was the end of that conversation, although I did agree with her but I had a plan and a mission!
The top was a not an issue I knew this was going to be a crop top,
I just needed to hem it after it was removed from the skirt.
My original plan was to make the top a crop top and a pair of bubble shorts. So I mark a crotch as you can see above......wait for it...wait for it....
wait for it.....
Mori was like "hell naw!" So I moved on to a fitted pencil skirt
but I had some serious maneuvering to do because I cut out that crotch area.
My plan was not to replace the zipper in the back and by gosh I was going to figure out a way to do it. Like I said I had a plan and a mission, so a patch would have to work, I had no other options to cover up this hole.
I didn't take the last fitting pictures my bad!
I had to put this on Mori and pin it to her curves.
Finished!!! I added white stitching at each seam to give
the outfit a pop of lines! Oh yeah I had a fight with my
iron and scorched the front of the skirt but it's still
wearable but that the shiny line you see down the front.
See that's the scorch line there.
This is how I covered up that hole in the back...
....interesting and I like it! I hope I did The Refashionista proud!
