My daughter received this dress for her birthday, and although it was adorable on the hanger, the design just wouldn't do. Unfortunately, because the arm holes were cut at such an angle, our lil' lady was finding herself rather exposed on top. This dress was absolutely not going to be suitable for public wear, so I had to come up with a way to work with what I had.
|Original dress- note extreme angle cut for arms that caused major "wardrobe malfunctions" when being worn.|
First, I used fabric scissors to remove the top banding around the neckline so that I could reuse it to go around the waist of the skirt.
|Removing the neck banding|
|Neck band completely detached|
|Three pieces of the dress cut into sections|
|Safety pins to connect neckline to top of new skirt|
|Sporting her new skirt!|
|Finished result- comfy new skirt!|
