Today I am reconnecting with my writing. Taking a mid afternoon break to share with you my Wednesday Wardrobe workout. This idea came to me in the wee hours last week. I had seen someone wearing a red dress and it made me think of one I had made for my cousins wedding a few years back.
I had made this from a VOGUE pattern in red silk taffeta. It has a gorgeous full skirt. But also a big bow sewn into the back which made wearing it with a cardi, coat very difficult. So as I lay in bed I thought how I could change this, and make the dress more wearable.
Here's how I did it...
Having freed the bow, it allowed me to use it for other garments too.
Often its just a simple rethinking of a design that can make a lot of impact. Skill level : EASY PEEZY
Plenty more Wednesday Wardrobe workouts to post up...stay tuned.
