I looked in one of my vintage suitcases full of garments to be refashed and what do ya know?
First on the chopping block: the longer one. I cut off part of the sleeves. I don't know why, but I'm into medium length sleeves, I always do that. Then I cut off the that neckline right around the seam.
I had plenty of excess material for a sash belt (the elastic waist was funny looking) but I used a black sash from a previous project. No-sew! Here it is.
"I want to stick around 'til I can't see straight."Look at that picture, it's all blurry. It's like the lyrics I just quoted from that song by Foreigner from which I took the title of this post.
And the other dress. Here's what I did:
Then, I put it sideways and cut off some of the neckline in front. Then I cut the sleeves again.
I actually took it in on the sides. I didn't want to, because I wasn't sure it was worth the effort. Yes, I am that lazy. Everything's a damn project to me.
After that, it still bored me. I looked through a bunch or sewing notions and scraps for something to make the dress more interesting.
