This is a Goodwill find, and it's been burning a hole in my closet. I haven't worn it because
I thought it was a little too boring.
I think I can fix that.
I had this slip from Grams and the light bulb turned right on!
I chopped the pretty little lace trim right off!
I chopped it at the seam and then again in half.
I put a basting stitch across the top. I used #10.
Then I pulled one of the threads to cinch the fabric.
It looked just like a curtain being pushed on a curtain rod!
Then I sewed the lace together like a ring,
and then I placed it inside out, on top of the inside out dress.
I had the perfect match of navy thread from the sewing basket my M-I-L gave me!
Then the pinning began....
I turned it right side out, and It was finished!
A little touch of lace makes this dress boring to
Thank you to my student Lexi H. for taking my "after" picture!
See you next time!
