My First Attempt at Tailoring

As I started getting more into fixing up thrift store dresses, I got a lot of requests from friends to create an outfit for them. Since my awesome friend Ellie was getting dragged to thrift stores a lot with me (I take forever when looking around), she picked herself out a dress and I got to work on it!

It was too big and had some weird pockets with metal attachments on the front, which made it look more like an apron rather than a cute dress. So I took it in, took off the pockets, and then fitted the straps and other areas of the dress to her. Final product.....

Now it's a nice business attire dress! I was excited that I got to try and make something for her, and also that she trusted me with it!

  1. This came out really nice for your first attempt! But what does Ellie think about it?....
