I used to sew a lot. I made myself skirts and dresses, then I had kids, and pretty much stopped sewing. Now I have a few items that need re-worked, and I found this blog: newdressaday.wordpress.com. It's been all over the news, and it is such a fun blog. I spent well over an hour looking at her creations.
First I have a cute dress my mom got for free in the locker room at work. It had been abandoned, and it was my size. So after a year my mom brought it home. I quickly found out why it was abandoned. It is poorly constructed. I'm thinking I will just cut it below the armholes, add a band of elastic, and have a sleeveless tube dress.
