Upcycled Dress

Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Simplicity 2767 Link to website or photo www.simplicity.com/p-1712-toddlerchild-dresses.aspx 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.

What you will need

  • Corduroy
