A Dress Re-Worked...

Well, I had a black dress in my closet that I hadn't worn for YEARS. The dress was just in there.. hanging. This dress was completely forgotten in my closet until I did that Black Mini Dress post, and then a light bulb just went off in my head... So I said to myself, "Self, why don't you just change the hem on this dress and make your own version?

So that's what I did!

Woo woo woo...


  1. That is too cute! See, you are bad for me. I have a cute pattern and black fabric in my stash. I've been in a sewing slump lately... this is jut what I need.

  2. very cute! i wish i knew how to sew. i'm jealous of you and erica b, lol.

  3. That is too cute Chanel...I really wish I could work a sewing machine right about now!

  4. Thanks ya'll!

    Miss Angel, my fellow FIDM Alumnus... you're always encouraging!

    Erica B... the TRUE sewing master! Can't wait to see yours!

    Thanks golightly!

    Cheap Chica and Keli, if you have a local Hancock Fabric Store in your area, they sometimes offer quick sewing classes for a small fee... I didn't know how to sew a stitch before design school, but it was pretty easy to learn!

  5. WOW Chanel!!!

    Pat yourself on the back b/c this is A HOMERUN!

    LOVE IT!

    WAY TO GO!!


    Do they come in a size 6???? ;-)lol... just kidding, but this is TOO CUTE! (like everyone else has already said)

  6. Your dress looks as good as the rest up there! Nice work.
