12 to Sew: May

6 June 2015

Last month I did absolutely nothing, so I set my mind that I would definitely do something this time. I did cut it quite close and it’s a very simple alteration (haha what else is new?) but it’s better than nothing, right?

First is a Uniqlo maxi dress I bought when I was pregnant in 2013. The length was fine that time because my huge belly hiked it up enough for me not to trip on it. But when my balloon belly is gone it’s too long for a non-heels wearer such as myself.

It’s a simple process of fitting, cutting and straight stitch hemming. 

I ended up taking 4 inches off the hem. That’s how too-long it was for little me. 

I got an instant turband, though!
