Am happy I got to turn this old fashioned dress into something lovely and fitting.
I got this dress from my friends mum for a gift and never liked the haltar neck design of the dress, so i made the fitting adjustment and cut off the unnecessary parts into an off shoulder gown as this.
First i cut off the halter neck part
Used 6 inches for my chest circumference
Next i added my hip bust and waist measurements for fitting.
On the sewing machine, i stitched and turned in the chest areas and added the strap to serve as thin sleeves.
I lover the outcome of this, as I turned the old fashion style that was exposing the bust into something more decent fitting and lovely.
A very easy diy
