|Me in the same dress :(|
So I got to measuring and then pinning. I put the dress on my dress form and pulled the hem up and pinned it. I planned to cut off the extra after sewing it, that way I could make sure it was the length I wanted it in case I needed to redo it. I would later regret this decision.
|This will turn out to be a bad idea.|
|Can you see that little tiny snip? GAHHH!!!!|
I cut out a tiny piece of path and ironed it to the back of the snip. You can't see the snip from the front but you can see a circular shape if you are looking for it. Oh well. Reason learned I guess. Anyway heres how my hem looked after cutting it off. I couldn't use my pinking shears to cut this material so hopefully it doesn't fray.
So next up was the sleeves. Im not going to try to make them tighter but I did make them smaller. I thought about removing the cuffs and resewing them on but when I tried to pick out the thread it would snag the material so I abandoned that idea and just did a normal hem.
Not too difficult of a refashion. Actually this may be more of an alteration than a refashion. So its not exactly my dream dress but it is a lot better than before. Im still thinking about taking it in on the sides but I haven't decided yet. It IS still a bit too big in the waist and on top.
