i have two happy news. i was featured in a great craft blog called u-create and i made it to the top 10 knock-off contest. to be honest when i looked at the other top 9, my exact thoughts were, “oh crap! the other ones are so good and mine sucks!” i felt a little embarrassed i’m not gonna lie! haha, don’t worry i’m not sad by any means, i was just in awe at how amazing the other 9 were and how much time they’d spent on their projects while mine took like an hr. i kept thinking what other project i could’ve submitted instead but what’s done is done and i’m honored to be in the top 10. and the winner gets chosen by votes but i’m not asking you to vote for me, i know i won’t make it, i just want you to check out the other 9, you will be blown away! i think my favorites are the wedding dress and the BCBG dress.
on to my 2nd project
before the dress was modestified and before the mirror was cleaned. 😉
bought fabric from joann’s
(i didn’t have the dress with me (which i don’t recommend) so i just bought it hoping it was the same color and i was lucky enough to have it be the same exact fabric and color!)
4. pull the sewed fabric down and hem the bottom of the newly-length dress.
i recommend ironing it too which i didn’t do(i hate ironing!).
it would flatten the hem and make it less noticeable i think.
and i paired it with red lips, leopard heels and a bracelet and
wore this to a valentine’s dance this past saturday.
It seems like many skirts selling at the stores these days are mid-thigh length or shorter. Which is a bummer since I’ll see a cute skirt at the store and gasp with excitement only to find in disappointment that it’s too short. So this is one of two ways I modestify my skirts.
unpick the bottom of the dress all the way around.
FYI: this will not work on all skirts, you’ll have to flip the skirt over and check the hem to see if there’s any extra fabric to lengthen.
