Charlotte Hall, ...
I refashioned this blouse out of a thrifted dress. The shorts were made with recycled material, using a vintage pattern from the1970s. I included the before picture of the dress in the project photos.
The outfit is really comfortable and it will be perfect for late spring and summer activities.
The short version of the process: I removed the sleeves and cut the skirt of the dress off, at the hips. Then, I removed the collar portion of the dress, shortened the bodice from the top, finished the edge of the collar and the bottom half of the armholes, reattached the two pieces and hemmed the bottom. I also created a belt from some of the trim around the bottom of the skirt.
If you are interested in the details and photos of the reconstruction process, feel free to check out the post on my "blog”:http://verityclothing.wordpress.com/2011/03/26/summer-reverie-blouse-and-shorts/
