I refashioned this dress which belonged to my older sister when she was younger. Since finding it in the attic, I had a bunch of ideas but set it aside for a while. Now, after using my entire supply of pins, and a quick few runs of the sewing machine, it’s a little minidress! I ditched the pink flower pin, removed the sleeves, turned it around, took it in a bit on the left and right sides on the front, relocated a button to the back, and made it a v-neck. It’s a little shabbily remade, but i’ll still wear it!! :)
