Well here goes ... Firstly confession time, not only am I new to Refashion Co-op but I'm also new to refashioning. I refashioned my very first garment today. Firstly I suppose I'd better say a bit about me. I'm 44, married with three boys (10, 7 and almost 4) My oldest has very severe ADHD and Aspergers Syndrome.
Sewing is my solace, my sanity.
Enough about me, you're not reading this to find out my life story so what have I been refashioning.
I bought this dress around 3-4 years ago to celebrate my wedding anniversary. I really like the style, its bias cut and fairly classic in style but I've always been disappointed that it wasn't silk, its also very shiny so only really suitable for quite dressy occasions of which there aren’t many in my life .....
So here is my refashion, finished albeit for a mistake I made whilst rushing. So at some later date (tomorrow) I shall re-turn the hem and re-sew it covering up my snipping mistake (which of course is right in the front!)￼
