So something great happened. I'VE ACQUIRED A SEWING MACHINE.
Sad part? It's only temporary. Boooooo.
But my mother let me commandeer her sewing machine until I have to go back to school, which means plenty of thrift store raids, yo.
But here is the first dress that I refashioned with the new [old] sewing machine:
Not gonna lie, this one started out rather massive on me. But that actually worked to my advantage I think:
Much better now I tink :]
But here is what I did:
Then I chopped off the sleeves right at the seams.
Next I sewed the top so that it looked more like a short sleeved shirt by just sewing along those fancy red lines.
Chopped off the extra of course!
Made a big ol' chip-chop across the bottom, hemmed like a fool, and voila!
And now it's a much cuter navy shirt-dress! The best part [though you can't tell here]? THIS DRESS HAS POCKETS. Aw yea.
I feel like you can always find some sort of shirt dress at the thrift store. I have the two that I refashioned lately, and I have three more that I'm working on now. Gotta love dollar day at Goodwill, right? ROIGHT.
See y'all soon with some other things I've been working on--
