And so, armed with two blouses that I decided to sacrifice....ahem, I mean sew. I began making my dress.
First I cut the bottom of the first blouse in half. I like the more fitted blouse for the top portion of my dress so I cut the floral blouse in half for the bottom.
Of course I eyeballed this.....I just cut it as straight as I could but no ruler was involved. At all. (Use a ruler if you are not
Next, I got an orange hue thread (since it matched my dress) and hand sewed the floral piece to the bottom hem of the blouse. Now, I could have stitched this with a machine like they did here but I am more comfortable hand stitching so I decided to go old school with this.
And there it is....all done! My bloggie pal Laura from my grandma reads my blog would be so proud. She posted her very chic DIY dress a week ago and it really inspired me to learn how to sew. Thanks Laura!
Your grandma reads your blog and I am sure she is proud too. Shhhhh, my mom reads mine and my sister's but she has no choice......lol, I set our blog posts to go straight to her email)
