Dress-to-Cami Refashion

October in Texas is a weird time of year. Mother Nature just can't make up her mind. It could be in the 55F/13C one day, and then it gets up to 85F/30C the next day. It's during this unpredictable season that I like to pair camisoles and tanks with cardigans and light-weight jackets that can be removed at a moment's notice. I think a crop job is just the thing to bring this too-big, too-long dress back to the front of my closet.

Dress-to-Cami Refashion - Before
I cut off a good 18 inches from the skirt, which went straight to my scrap pile for future use. Then I took in the sides a bit.


With the addition of a new hem, I'm ready to take a stroll in the late-late summer sunshine or toss on my army green jacket and rain boots for some autumn puddle-splashing.
