Drag it out of the trash... and make it beautiful

« on: May 20, 2006 05:50:20 PM »

I recently picked up a great vintage sweaterdress - I love the length, I love the shape, and I love the style.  The only problem is that it's about as stiff as a board, and no amount of fabric softener seems to change that.  So I bought some brown fabric, traced the dress shape onto it, and wound up with this:





However, I grossly overestimated the amount of fabric I needed for my tunic.  So I made a shirt and skirt out of the same fabric and ribbon.  Hedwig is modelling them, as they look much better on her than they do on me.



The brilliant thing is that they really were incredibly easy.  The skirt and ruched top took about half an hour apiece, and the dress/tunic only took about an hour.  Not bad, considering I hadn't learned to use my sewing machine then, so I did them all by hand!
