This month proved to be a month of tying up loose ends. I took inventory of my sewing studio and decided to finish revamping items from my wardrobe.
I bought and wore this dress just once to an event a long while ago. For the event the length (below the knee) was appropriate, but not something I would wear regularly. Trying it on this time around I realized that a tunic would suit me best for the summer, to be comfortable, but not in a t-shirt. So I’ve cut the length and created a top out of this dress.
This is one of my favorite dresses. It is flattering to my figure and still a little sexy. After seeing the cutout trend last summer and knowing this dress could easily translate the trend without me designing a new piece. I decided to close the back and extend the bottom opening of the dress to the front. A simple switch that will allow this dress to really seem transformed.
This was a simple top that wasn’t really my style when I purchased it. I have worn it once and hated the halter style. I love the stripe pattern, but figured if I eliminated the straps altogether, this would allow me to dress the top up or down and make it less casual.
I absolutely love this piece! It wasn’t a top seller and just this Spring the fabric was discontinued. Realizing this piece couldn’t be duplicated and wanting to be able to wear it past just its’ Resort purpose, I shortened the top to create a top that can now be a sheer overlay tunic with a sloped hem.
Just as I thought all of my revamping was done until winter rolls around, Cruz found a few pairs of pants that I don’t wear often and suggested I turn them into bottoms I would wear. I’m up for the challenge! Stay tuned for the third installment of my wardrobe malfunction.
