Beth, The Renegade Seamstress, is hosting the third season of Refashion Runway. Its been fun seeing what each contestant creates each week. Plus, I have the honor of being one of the guest judges this time! I had so much fun participating last season, but have to admit its nice not having the stress of the competition. I can sew along, though, without feeling the pressure! This week's theme is maxi skirt or dress. I combined a knit top with a linen jumper and had a new maxi dress in about half an hour...so simple!!
The knit top was too large, so I put it on my dress form and pinned the sides.
I stitched along the pins and trimmed away the excess.
I made a chop at the waist.
I also determined where to cut the jumper and made another chop.
I pinned the two pieces, right sides together, and stitched in place. The top was a little bit wider than the skirt, so I just eased it in.
And that was it! There was enough room in the dress to still slip it over my head. I just cinched it up with a leather belt.
I like to link to these great parties!
