This is yet another yard sale dress that I purchased for a dollar.  I was so enamored with the design that it took me a while before I actually refashioned it.







My refashion was accomplished with four easy steps:
1.  Remove the sleeves.
2.  Remove a foot and a half of material from the bottom of the dress.
3.  Hem the sleeves and bottom of the dress.
4.  And the biggest part of the whole refashion???  Turn the dress around!







I added a belt and this dress was good to go. 

This is by far one of my favorite refashions!

More pictures available at my blog.

Great recon - immensely more wearable and no more "little house on the prairie"
