What's a girl to do when she recieves an invitation to a masquerade themed birthday party and has nothing to wear? Why, spruce up an old dress, of course!
This is the dress that I decided to alter to my liking.
There I am in my Junior year of high school - 2 years ago, 2"inches shorter, && 20 pounds lighter. xD haha. I just really am amused at how my sense of style has changed since then.
But then, snipity-snip-stitch-stitch-stitch:
I can hardly believe how it turned out. I love it
All I did was put a few stitches in the top to form a slight V shape, cut the skirt to make it go straight across, cut the tie/bowy thingy off, and gathered the skirt in a few places to get a bunched effect with the stitches.
I did wear it out like this since it was only a small party, but I still think I need to finalize it somehow... there is no hem at the bottom - it's just raw fabric from when I cut it [[sorry, my sewing//fabric terms are non-existant]]. Any advice?
