Snip snip! Oh no I realized after I finished the hem that the dress was too short! What to do? What to do? O why o why did I not measure correctly and double check my measurements?
Not to worry, my mum and I put our heads together and came up with a solution. Of the piece that I cut off there was a sizable length of silk. But if I attached it to the bottom of the dress it would ruin the shape and look awkward! But the lining....
I sewed the silk remnant on to the bottom of the lining and created a second tier of the skirt. Awesome, now it's not too short! It's got some hi-low action, and it dips down in the back. Thankfully I was able to fix my refashioning mistake with a refashion!
Paired with a thrifted belt, this coral shift is now totally wearable!
