Not a Real Green Dress, That's Cruel.

What should have been the construction of a simple sheath dress has turned into a war of attrition. Today I took a break from trying to wrestle it into submission to do a nice, simple reconstruction.

I'll start with the worst picture ever taken of me.

Whew! What a mess! A friend of mine let me go through her closet discards but I didn't have the chance to try anything on before I took them home and...well...clingy knits are not my friend. At least, not below the waist.

So I thought I would change it into a shirt.

I used pins to figure out how I wanted to shorten it and change the sleeves. I used the wrist ties to make new cuffs.

Yay! Not atrocious!
