Wee Willy Winky Dress: REHASHED

When I found this dress in a thrift store, it made me a little sleepy. I loved the lace, the embroidery detail and the lovely gauzy cotton fabric. It looked like a nightgown but I knew it could be saved! I decided to chop it in half and turn it into a crop top with a matching skirt with elastic waist. The first thing I did was to take off the sleeves and take it in a little at the sides. Then I finished off the sleeves with some bias tape. The next thing I did was to figure out how short I wanted the top to be, then cut and hem. The last thing I did with the top was to remove the lace trim around the neckline.

The skirt half of this project was very simple. I just cut it to the desired length leaving the embroidery at the bottom, then made a casing and inserted an elastic waistband. And there you go!


Now I have a cute top and matching skirt that can be worn together or separately, the possibilities are endless!

I should be finding out next week whether or not I have been accepted as a vendor at Craft Lake City this year. Cross your fingers, I’ll let you know next week! I also have been asked to participate in a Fashion Show for the Ogden Arts Festival on June 13th with Chuk’s Vintage. I will be providing all of the swimsuits for this fashion show, stay tuned for pictures and if you are local, come check it out!

Back to the machine…
