It’s been another late night and long day, but I am so excited to share tonight’s refashion with you! It started out feeling thrilled in a little black dress I snagged on clearance in a local consignment store.
I’m in need of something business professional for my thesis defense next week and I think this dress will do the trick! First, I removed the brass buttons (I’ll be saving those for a future project).
Next, I removed the sleeves and brought the lining up to adjust the fit. I brought the waist in slightly and took out seams along the hips as much as the seams would allow.
Finally, I brought the sleeves in and cleaned up all the remaining seams.
And then I was just feeling a little Audrey Hepburn, what do ya think?
I was in sore need of a little black dress and I think this will be the perfect thing for my thesis defense next week! I also have an interview so this might be the dress that helps me finish my graduate degree and get a job! Do you think one dress can be that lucky? I sure hope so! This challenge has been fun and a great distraction during a stressful week. I have something simple planned tomorrow, but it’ll be fun to see how it turns out! Two days left… happy sewing everyone!
