InstructionsI just upcycled a women's button front corduroy dress into a dress for my 9 year old daughter. I used size 8 pattern pieces for the bodice. Then just cut off a section of the skirt using the same hem and gathered it to fit the bodice. The sleeves from the original dress were removed and reconfigured to fit.
Type of item: Clothing
Style: Cute, Casual
What was your inspiration?
Daughter had outgrown all of her fall/winter dresses and needed a new dress.
What are you most proud of?
That I was able to upcycle a dowdy thrift shop find into a wearable warm dress for my daughter.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Took me some planning to make sure that I had enough fabric to cut out all the pieces. I cut facings out wrong and so ran out of fashion fabric for facing and had to use cotton quilting fabric. I did not use any interfacing or lining because the fabric was thick enough on its own.
