Sometimes modifying a garment that is already in your closet can move it from the almost-never-worn status to a frequent-favorite.
This was my first dress of 2014. I LOVE the fabricÂ (purchased atÂ District Fabric in Seattle), but I originally made View C/D with the wrap ties. I should have known better. Fussy hoo-haws on clothing is not my style. Not.At.All.
So I ripped open the (SERGED) side seams, removed the ties, and now have a dress that fits my personal style better. I could have donated this dress, or given it to a friend, but I wanted to try a re-do first because I love the fabric. Naturally, ripping out the previous stitching took longer than serging the seam closed again, but it still was way less than an hour from start to finish.
Do you ever try re-making clothing that isn’t a total win for your personal style? What was your favorite re-make?
