I had a dress, a bit old fashioned, as I didn’t wear it, it was almost new. And I had three spare hours. That is the result.
Basically I ustitched the upper part of the dress, then I tried it on and marked where I would like the shoulders to be in order to mark the armhole, the upper side would be the fluffy collar. Then I unstitched 16 cm for the armholes. I added the collar and sewed the armholes (I profited the side seams and the ending).
I hope you’ve understood the idea, otherwise I can only try to provide instructions in Spanish ;-))
