Same ties, same pleats, same length, same arms, but different fabric. Just take the shape/size and pretend these lovely polka dots cover it. Oh, and make sure you include that spot too, because that was one of many that were found on the dress!!
I was ready to turn it into something fab, especially with that pleated skirt!!
I started off with lots of cutting! First with the sleeves... (where the maje spottage was)
Next with the length...
I pinned the raw edges and prepped them for some elastic to get put inside! Stretchy short sleeves for today!
I stitched up the arms and added my elastic...
...and then stitched the elastic ends together before closing up the seam!
The body was a bit big on me too, so I took in about an inch on each side to make the top nice and fit! I kept the ties intact because at some point I'll totally tie them into a bow at the neck...
... but for today's super hot purposes I didn't want to promote the neck sweat!
This was a most comfortable thing to wear during a So Cal heat wave!! I even went as far as sitting in the shaded grassy area of my lawn because the sprinklers just went off!
Ain't gonna lie...I kneeled and embraced the damp blades on my shins just because it was that hot out. I mean...the lengths I'll go with an apartment sans AC.
Hope everyone stayed cool this weekend!!
