Way back when, I participated in a fashion swap and scored this awesome plaid halter wrap dress. I don’t wear halters by themselves, so I didn’t seem to wear it often or even more than the one time here.
The bust was too big and the skirt seemed to be a reverse high-low (high in back, low in front – which totally drives me crazy). I’m so picky with how clothes fit! After sitting in my closet for over a year, it was time to get refashioned. Since reworking this skirt late last week, I’ve worn it several times!
Here’s what I did:
- I chopped off the halter part as evenly as possible
- hemmed the top with biased tape
- rounded the ends of each side of the wrap so the skirt goes a bit higher in front than in the back.
The refashion was super speedy with the biased tape and my rolled hem foot. I believe I got it done in under 30 minutes, which is incredibly fast! Chris couldn’t even tell where I reworked the skirt, so that was also a major bonus.
The plaid has tons of fun colors in it, so it works perfectly with my summer and fall pieces. Here are the outfit’s details:
- top: Target + refashioned
- skirt: swapped + refashioned
- shoes: thrifted
I’ve been itching for a clothing swap lately! Have you done one before?
