It's when you make something, are not happy with it, never wear it, so you remake it! Also case in point as to why you should make a muslin (practice version out of cheap fabric) first!
|Original version of the dress|
I made this dress 6 months ago and despite loving the fabric, I only wore it once. The neckline was too open and weird for my shape. And the sleeves were just a bit too much with this big graphic print. You can see the original dress here.
To remake it I simply cut the front bodice out (the dress was also a bit too big so I had plenty of fabric to work with) and cut a new front bodice using New Look pattern 6262. I chopped off the sleeves, but kept them in case I decide to reattach them come Autumn (perhaps I should just call this the "Indecision Dress"??!). I finished the sleeve opening with bias tape.
And Ta da! A dress I have already worn twice in the past few weeks!
