Today’s refashion takes a dress that totally didn’t work to a skirt (what else!) that we’re bubbling with excitement over! We found this dress the other day at Goodwill for $4. We’ve been keeping our eye out for some dresses since Fess refashioned this totally cute one and inspired us to try dresses more often!
It was on a mannequin, and we didn’t notice until we got it home that one strap was broken. If we would have noticed, we could have probably talked them down to 1/2 price!
The other problem with it? “Bumps” where the intended wearer has none! But that’s okay, we’re going in an un-bumpy direction with this one!
Step 1: Cut off top of dress.
Step 2: Fold over and sew a new top seam! Because this was elastic, we simply had to pull out some of the stretch as we sewed the new seam, and it was good to go. It bounced right back, and now look!
Isn’t that awesome! A new bubble skirt with a very, very fun pattern. And no more unwanted bumps! That pesky broken strap is gone too!
Total Time: 10 minutes
Total Cost: $4
