This week’s refashion is another one from the pile of clothes K asked me to update a little for her. So it didn’t start out bad at all, really. In this case, it was a dress that she really liked a lot, but the color had faded a smidge and the straps had stretched out some over time, so it no longer fit super flatteringly. It was just a bit too low cut and the empire waistline was in sort of an in-between land between just under the bust and the waist. But it was a supremely quick and easy refashion.
And then I took in the straps a couple of inches.
And that was it! The whole thing took about 3 hours from start to finish because of the dying process (which includes letting it sit for an hour and then washing and drying it in the laundry machines), but that included fewer than 30 minutes of working or concentrating on anything. Taking the straps up took 10 minutes. It’s got to be the quickest and easiest of the refashions I’ve done to date.
And that concludes this week’s refashion. I won’t call it terrible to wearable, since it wasn’t even close to terrible to start out with. But I think it’s much more wearable now.
