31 May Refashioned Linen Dress – A Foot to Spare
Over the last few months I’ve lost 10 pounds. That means several clothes from the past fit once more, and there’s nothing like an easy refashion to make my day 🙂
It’s true, I wore my dresses this long around the turn of the century – LOL. Above is a dress from the old Talbots made from Irish Linen – need I say more? I’ve hung onto it all these years hoping to wear it again one day.
The lines in the dress are spot so I kept the refashion simple.
After removing approximately 12 inches of the length, I retrieved a roll of tiny black tassel trim from my stash, and overlapped four vertical rows to the lower edge.
That’s all it took to bring the dress into the 21st Century!
I find the back more flattering in the shorter length.
The tone on tone effect of the trim/dress is subtle, but a contrast trim would have been all wrong.
To say I’m happy to be back into my old clothes is an understatement even if most of them are out of style, but here’s to more upcoming refashions…… I doubt any will be this easy!
Until soon 🙂
