I haven’t done a refashion in quiet some time. A long time. I’m working on it, okay?
I’ve had a small pile of items sitting on my desk that I have intended on refashioning for a few months. I actually picked up this giraffe dress in the fall sometime… maybe even the late summer. When I first bought it, I didn’t have plans of refashioning it at all, but the more I looked at it, the less I liked the weird scribbly part at the bottom.
The fit was fine, and I was really into the giraffe print at the top, so I eventually decided to just be rid of the part of the pattern I wasn’t too keen on, and turned this dress into a top. This is a first for me. I am a huge dress fan, and normally would never choose to ruin a dress, but those scribbles…. I couldn’t deal with it.
I gave this dress a huge chop, and the new top a hem. Super simple.
Now there’s only the nice giraffe print left! Of course it’s mid winter and freezing cold here in Cincinnati… so this won’t be out for a few more months… unless I’m lucky.
I hope everyone is enjoying their 2015!
