Polka Dots Are Back In Line!! Final Dress Refashion!

Posted on

I just want to take the time to thank all my lovely readers who took the time to suggest the way I should refashion this beloved yellow with black polka dot dress.  I finally bit the bullet and finished the refashion.  If you could remember the initial dress here.

As I said in my previous post, I had removed the shoulder pads.

Removed those bulky sleeves.

Then taking my animal print dress’ sleeves as inspiration, I copied the sleeve shape onto the polka dot sleeves and cut the out.  Then I pinned them on, stitched the sleeves and zigzagged the raw edges.  I turned over the remaining arm hole.  And Ta da.  The dress is finished.  I think the small cap sleeves balance the bulk of the pockets on the bottom and yet are still in keeping with the style of the dress.  I still need to iron it, but I was so excited to share my finished refashion.  And I hate to iron, so I have to wait til I am in the mood and have a good movie to watch while I iron.

I love it so much now, I don’t know why it took me so long to decide, but I dithered and dithered over this one.  This finally took me only about 30 minutes to cut and attach the sleeves.  I have included a handbag from my collection and my recently refashioned black flats to complete and outfit.  Not sure what necklace I would wear with this dress as it is pretty loud and busy and in your face as it is.  But I love it anyways.  And for the final outfit reveal!!

Hope you like the final results.  Let me know what you think.  Cheers, Michele
