Another Garment Makeover!

The wardrobe audit is continuing… this top was a dress yesterday. I made the dress about four years ago and have worn it quite a bit but figured I would get more wear out of it as a top. So out came the scissors and a tape and after a few calculations I had decided where to amputate! The bottom of the dress had been hemmed with bias made from the same fabric so this morning I unpicked this and stitched it onto the bottom edge of the top.

The fabric was given to me by a complete stranger I met in a store who was clearly out her deceased mother’s stash. The pattern was gifted also. The roll collar is my own addition… those who know me will not be surprised as I am a bit addicted to roll collars!!!

I am wearing this new top now (with the pants from Day 16) as I type and I think it will become a firm favourite! Ooh…. I do love a good upcycle!!!
