Yeah, I'm talking about when that dress just won't fit. In this case, I couldn't get one of my arms into the sleeve nor button up the top portion of the dress.
This just wasn't going to work...
Time to make this something wearable!
I started by snipping a panel of corduroy material that was stitched to the back of the dress. (It looked like a big Band-aid that gathered material and was ultimately what was not letting me get my other arm in or button anything up!)
Next, I shortened the piece.I trimmed the fabric with pinking shears...
...and then pinned under the raw edges to prepare a new hem.
...and I put tights on with my knee high boots and was ready to go!
The panel is gone!!
Pop that collar!
I mean how cool is the underside of the button area on this piece? So chic.
Typical goofball Marisa. When I saw this image from afar I just had to recreate her face! I mean, she's so excited!!
This was my basketball viewing ensemble. A dress, but made out of corduroy, which made it ok in my book!
We're an excited bunch :)
I think this is such a great winter dress! "Just add tights" should be the tagline!!
From won't button, to fits like a charm!!
