Well, a while back Lily was given a Christening dress. A friend of my Mother-in-law saw it at the church thrift store she works at. It was new with the tags still on it and she was thoughtful enough to save it for Lily. At the time it was too big for her and not quite our style, but she suggested I keep it anyway and just cut it off for Lily to wear this summer. Well, I don't have much (*any*) experience altering clothes, but I figured this would be a good project to start off with (it was free...lol). Unfortunately, I didn't think to take a "before" picture until after I started cutting things off, so in the picture below, I tried to just lay the sleeves and the bottom ruffle where they originally were. Basically, I removed the sleeves, shortened it, and dyed it orange. It's a little longer than I meant for it to be, but my model wouldn't really cooperate. I think it came out pretty cute, especially for a first attempt at alteration. What do you think??? What creative project are you most proud of? What would you like to be good at?
