A refashion of sorts
Remember my favorite dress of 2009? I called it the purple rain dress, Simplicity 3678. I wore this dress as much as a person could, sometimes twice a week. Loved it.
That is, until I became aware of the unflattering length of the hem. Sometime in 2010 I decided that the dress was too long and stopped wearing it. But a couple of weeks ago, I started to miss my dress and thought why not just raise the hem and make it wearable again.
Of course, I decided this about 20 minutes before I had to leave the apartment with Jack, so I just did slapdash job of it. I folded the hem up evenly all around and just sewed a slight zigzag stitch from the right side in black thread. From 8 inches away, you can see the hem, but not from 2 feet away. And who’s going to be 8 inches away from hem besides an overly curious toddler?
And this is how I have been wearing it the last two weeks. Yes, it is in heavy rotation again. 🙂
In other sewing news, I’m still working on the Cashmere Goddess. It’s slow going. Hopefully this week I will finish it, but I won’t promise — my social life keeps getting in the way.
Happy sewing everyone!
