Supplies Needed[edit | edit source]

  • Embroidered Dress
  • Sewing Kit
  • Scissors

Directions[edit | edit source]

  1. I set the dress out on a flat surface and cut four-inches off the bottom. I cut that much because I wanted to turn the dress into a blouse with a hem. I cut about 1" below the embroidered design.
  2. Next, I cut up the side seams, about 12-14" from the bottom, and then I hemmed and pressed all the raw edges on the slits, as well as the bottom.This made the bottom have two flaps to give my more breathing room (until I lose weight!).
