So onward to the next dress. This one, from the thrift shop, of course, was already pretty cute, but it needed a major chopping. It was way too long.
So the ruffle had to come off, groan, and had to be gathered again. I have to admit...this is not one of my favorite things to do. Also had to shorten the lining. The fabric is a very thin cotton. I made a rolled fabric flower thanks to the tutorial I found at http://jonesdesigncompany.com . They have lots to choose from so check them out when you're in need of a flower idea. I put a pin on the back.
|Yes, it's time to chop of that length.|
See all that thread in the background? And still I always have to buy more!
|All finished and ready to go to my Etsy shop.|
|The flower was done while watching "Project Runway" reruns.|
