Freya recently bought this dress, but didn’t completely like it on her (this isn’t her in the photo, by the way – the photo is courtesy of the retailer she bought it from).
She felt a little too much like the second wife from “Big Love” in it. So I took it home and took out the sleeves. What do you think?
After unpicking the sleeves, I used bias binding to face the armhole, which I then turned to the inside and hand-stitched to the lining. A professional result, I think!
Our theory is that if she doesn’t like it as a sleeveless dress, I can turn it into a skirt. If that doesn’t work out, it may become a bag.
