Mens vi venter på foråret - sommerkjole-omsyning

Jeg synes at denne kjole var virkelig sød, men den krævede lidt arbejde for at fortjene en plads i klædeskabet.
I thought this dress was cute, but it needed a little work to deserve a spot in my wardrobe.


Den havde aftagelige stropper, men plastichægterne til stropperne var trukket ud af form, så de slet ikke kunne sidde fast. Jeg fjernede dem og syede i stedet stropperne fast. Dog sådan, så de stadig kan indstilles (ligesom bh-stropper).
The dress has detachable straps, but the hooks was bend out of shape. I removed them and stitched the straps to the dress, keeping the
straps adjustable.


Den havde ballonnederdel, noget som er utrolig uflatterende på mig. Jeg klippede kanten af og lagde nederdelen op.
The dress had a balloon skirt, which is very unflattering on me. I cut of the hem and made a new one.

Til sidst syede jeg en vildfaren knap på igen. Jeg havde overvejet at fjerne knapperne, men jeg synes egentlig at de er sjove på sådan en start-90'er måde.
Lastly I sewed a stray button back on. I did think about removing all the buttons, but I think they are funny/cute in a 90's sort of way.



Så mangler jeg bare varmere vejr....
Now I just need weather warm enough to wear it. At present weather fluctuates between 3-10 C (37-50 F).
Though with the odd spike at 19 C (66 F) three days ago, but before I could run to the wardobe for lighter clothes, it was colder again. Rain, sun, sleet, sun again, rain again, hail, strong winds, no wind a.s.o. Oh the joys of coastal climate).
