In sympathy with my 4-Her, I will give my goal sheet for the dress makeover.
Goal: My goal is to make the tie dye dress into a short dress without smocking. I additionally desire to spend less than $10 in this makeover.
List what you do to reach the goal:
- Make a pattern.
- Find supplies.
- Make a lining.
- Cut the fabric.
- Sew the fabric.
Evaluation: I think I reached the goal. The dress is short and has no smocking. I spent under $5 by using coupons and selecting inexpensive fabric for the lining.
Because of the fabric pattern and volume, I do not find the dress very attractive on me. I like a slimmer look and more mature fabric. However, this was a good example of turning something at a garage sale, back of the closet, etc., into a more current, inexpensive look. Shopping in your own closet is wonderful.
