Make : Grow : Thrift

Each Monday you can link to a post on your blog sharing with us something that is handmade, homegrown, homemade (such as a recipe) or recycled/thrifted.

This does not need to be craft or sewing based. This is all about making our lives a little greener week by week.

A re-make!

It's a wet, wintery kind of day here in Melbourne.  Perfect for staying indoors and sewing.
Sometime ago I made this dress from the Yoshiko Tsukiori's Stylish dress book.  You can re-visit the post here.  It was way to big and it has sat in my closet every since.
So today I unpicked most of the dress and made the necessary adjustments.

I started with the top, adding some darts to the bust and gathering to the bodice seam which joins to the skirt.  I took a larger seam allowance as well for the side seams and under arms.

After cutting a large amount of fabric from the sides of the skirt, I used the same seam allowance and gathered it to match the top bodice piece.
The result.  A much nicer fitting dress that I can now actually wear!

 Did you have something that was Made : Grown : Thrifted this week? 
Please share below, we would love to hear about it. 

Don't forget you can also upload your photo's to The Haby Goddess facebook page.
