Do you ever make something that comes out exactly as planned but just isn’t your style at all?
Such was the case with that beauteous boho dress – a fabulous refashioned result that I’ll never feel comfortable wearing.
Pick some ingredients that are actually your style and create one for yourself in under an hour:
I chose a dowdy, oversized top & floaty layered skirt – neither of which I would ever have worn separately but thought would improve immensely if put together.
The dull top was definitely enhanced by a bath in forest green dye!
I simply popped the top over the skirt with right sides facing and elastic waists lined up
zigzagged them together just below that elastic hem
and trimmed off the excess bits
et voila! An easy gathered waist!
As always, I zigzagged over that outside seam for extra strength.
And then tried it on only to realize that the damn floaty thing didn’t suit my hourglass frame in the least – harumph!
