Another early post worth pulling from the archives. Thank you Cooper for being such a good sport and taking so many pictures of your mom back then. 🙂
I’ve been seeing summer maxi dresses and skirts everywhere!
And I had just the thrift store dress to refashion into one. It was so unflattering in every way except I loved the color and the print.
Next, sew new side seams.
Then, using the fabric cut from the sides, make a new waist band.
With right sides together pin and sew new waistband.
Make a small casing in the top of the waistband.
Thread drawstring through casing, tie to fit and off you go looking good for any summer event.
