As much as I love to sew, I couldn’t resist this dress I found at Old Navy.
The color! The print! The lightweight, summery, flowy fabric! The neckline! The tucks! The matching belt! The price!
But . . . after “almost” wearing it several times, I decided it was too short for 5′ 10″ me.
So, out came the scissors and off came 6 inches from the hem. After a quick pinning and hemming on the sewing machine, I had a PERFECT tunic to wear over capris or skinny jeans!
The drapiness made the remaining fabric perfect for an infinity scarf, too. All I had to do was hem the raw edge . . . quick, easy, and a fun “freebie” accessory.
P.S. My grandmother made these beautiful crocheted hangers for me when I was a new bride. I AM going to learn how to do this someday! ♥
