I can, however, show you this super simple refashion that was about all the sewing I had time for this month. It started as a slightly too-tight dress picked up at that clothes swap I went to a couple months back.
Step one of this refashion was to allow the piece to languish in my refash pile for a few months while I lost a few more pounds. Now it's not quite as snug as in the "before" pic.
I think the pattern is supposed to be a sort of modern-artsy representation of trees, but to me it looks more like a circuit board. Whatever it may be, I liked the fabric, but those weird apron-esque pockets have got to go! I've got an abundance of dresses, so how about a cute top? First, we'll chop off the bottom portion, just below the bottom of the side-seam zipper.
And after a quick trip through the sewing machine, it's got a new hem, and that's it!
Such an easy conversion from blah to beautiful!
