I've been away from Craftster for a while, but I'm baaack and I thought I'd share this quick little refashion with you.
I happened upon this skater style dress outside my local GT Boutique (that'd be Giant Tiger, kids) for $5.00. Yup, FIVE BUCKS. Since it was red, I couldn't pass it up, and I knew I'd be able to make it wearable for me, since it sure wasn't in its current state/length.
Seriously friends... SHORT.
So I took a measurement from my natural waist (where, thankfully the seam line on the skater dress actually hit) to where I thought a peplum should fall. It was approximately 9 inches. I then laid out the dress sideways, made a mark about 9 inches down from the front and just went to town and cut a new hi/low hemline. It was $5. I figured I'd be adventurous.
I then laid it out flat and evened up my crazy cut lines before I turned up the edge twice and hemmed it. Simple!
Then I slapped that baby on with a belt and rocked it!
Not bad for $5.00!
C&C totes welcome!
