Making Stuff: Holiday Dresses {Women’s Sweater Refashion}

by This is Carrie on January 10, 2012

Before: Two gold women’s sweaters, a women’s blouse and a piece of embroidered sheer curtain fabric.

After: Two 60’s inspired mini dresses for the holidays.

The embroidered sheer curtain fabric that once sat in Todd’s (recently passed) Grandmother’s sewing pile made perfect puff sleeves for Pumpkin’s dress.

Basic Steps:

Cut off sweater sleeves.

Sew up side seams to fit child.

Cut new puff sleeves from fabric or women’s blouse to fit new armhole.

Sew in new sleeves, hem edge and insert elastic to create puff.

Choose the right size to avoid sagging and shoulder bites.
An important fact to bear in mind is that you should not expect
to gain all the funds you need from the business in a single month.
Change it up, put your black carefully on the shelf and
go for brown. When a woman wears clothes that highlight her assets then she automatically draws the attention away
from her trouble areas, giving her a slimmer look.

When picking out maternity tops, make sure you pick tops that
allow for breast expansion. By the mid 1980s high end
fashion and designer denim brands were every where.
I can assure you one thing that, if you follow all these steps then you can easily acquire a nice look.
Woman’s suits are really popular all over the world.
