The other day at the thrift store I found this cute and very comfortable brown dress.
In love with the beading and embroidery at the waist, not a huge fan of those sleeves. Also, it had shoulder pads, which was the first thing to go.
Here's a closer look at those sleeves. They just didn't do anything for me. So I got to chopping.
After I got rid of that elastic business at the end, I used another dress as a guide to take in the sleeves a bit.
I did a little more trimming to make the ends even, then folded over a 1/4 inch seam and sewed it down.
See, so much better! I'm a fan of 3/4 length sleeves and I like this hemming much more.
Now I'm all set for a fun day out in the leaves! I wish... I'll be wearing it to work today. But on another day, it's a great dress for going out!
