DIY Making Alterations-Turning a Dress Into a Cropped Top
This was a ridiculously unflattering shapeless dress but I loved the ikat pattern and cowl neck so I cut that part out and turned it into a top. The ikat bit was just in the front of the dress so the first thing I did was cut that part in half and put the bottom half on the back. Then I took some natural colored cotton muslin and cut two long strips of it to add to the sides and two rectangles of it to add to the sides under the arms. In the photo above I have not yet attached the part to go under the arms.
