This week I’ll show you how to lengthen a short dress in a different way.
I bought this dress from F21(stripes and mint? how can I say no?) and put it through the wash cycle. When it came out, this is how it looked.
I went back to the store to see if they would exchange it, but they pointed out that on the tag it said, “hand wash only”. Shucks, my bad! So I bought another same exact dress and took it home with me(the dress was only $10 each).
I cut the torn part off.
Then cut the bottom length of the other dress to attach it.
And sewed the bottom part onto the original dress.
Then I got a fitting dress and traced it with a disappearing ink pen.
And sewed along the traced line. And you’re done!
What you’ll need:
– two of the same dress/fabric
-disappearing ink pen
-a dress you like the fit of.
Estimated time: 30 mins.
Project cost: moderate(mine was a little over $10)
Skill level: a confident beginner
