After much thinking, I decided that I could just sew a new bodice...and have a new house-dress!
...I carefully removed the side zipper, and cut the skirt free...
|(I cut it...it was a very hard and sad thing to do. But I did it.)|
...then I thought I should use the old green bodice for accent: I cut the neck facing (remembering to line it, so it looks good)...
...and then I realized that reusing the original white zipper would look funny going down the back of the new red bodice...
Yes, I am aware that this dress is rather child like, but it was fun to make,
and I hope I bought it some more time...before I make something else out of it! =)
*SONP not is officially happening this year, but I like to sew, and wear cute dresses & skirts anyway, so I'll just do my own thing....(Summer of No Pants is a Google+ group, and anyone can join & post at anytime.)
