This halter dress has been sitting in my closet since pre-baby days. First, the girls were too big for it while I was nursing, and now, sadly, they don’t fill it out at all. Sigh. Time to refashion it, as I still like the fabric.
So, first I ripped out the zipper,
Then marked a line and hacked off the top
I added a shorter zipper, then used part of the ribbon from the ties as bias tape around the waistband. The other piece of ribbon wanted to be an accent, so…
And now I have a new skirt!
