Refashionista Returns

In a show of lameness on my part, I haven’t kept up my end of the Refashion Coop bargain. I remedied that last night! I bought this, brand new with tags, at Domsey’s Warhouse a few (maybe more) weeks ago with the intention of using to make a dress.

Without the belt. I like it better with, though I don’t think it’s bad without it.

I basically serged off a section of the skirt, stitched a seam close to the serged edge, used some of the scrap piece to make straps and attached them. I couldn’t even be arsed to turn the straps to hide the serged edge. Sue me ;p I have a plan for that large-ish scrap. If all goes according to plan, look for it to show up with worn with a circle skirt next week!

    • Thank you!! I’m so glad I grabbed it that day, I almost didn’t see it because it was in the plus sized section. Why even make that a separate department in a thrift store???

  1. And it looks good with or without the belt. I think it makes it look more of a casual side without the belt. Love that new skirt dress of yours. :) Great one! The left over is great for scarf as well, I guess. :)

    • Thank you!!! I’ve already spent way too much time fashioning the leftover into a little top. I spent more time on it than this dress and the last 5 things I’ve sewn, lol
