Not gonna lie…I love a little nip & tuck to ready made clothes in my closet! About 75% of my closet is #handcrafted #handmade but I still love to shop! I was a bit disappointed when these came & were too baggy in the leg especially around my ankles.
Started to take these in then decided I wanted to share!
1 leg shows original cut, the other shows the first alteration I started
But don’t despair…a little #nipntuck to take these in totally did ’em right and I can wear them now!
Woo hoo! Do you follow my blog? #refashionmama #sewing #leggings #refashion #alterations #lovetosew
Before & After pics of this refashion:
My friend, Nicole ordered this cute dress and when it arrived, the sizing was WAY off! It was so small that it may fit a size 0-2. She sent it to me to see if I could do anything with it. I was afraid I would only be able to save the bottom portion of the skirt because it was that small!
Well, I removed the elastic in the waist and chopped off the top of the dress since the bust line would not fit her.
I ended up saving the entire skirt portion of the dress because I changed the top to a yoga waistband. I made this “disaster dress” (as my friend called it) into a cute maxi skirt w/a custom drapey tank to match. I can’t wait to see pics, Nicole!
