D.I.Y: Taking up your pretty little dresslet

One problem I always seem to have with beautiful little dresses is that they are that little bit too long. Recently a lot of dresses sold in shops are three quarter length, which can be off putting to girls, I was put off the length of my Autumn Sun dress when I bought it but quickly realised I could take it up and have a nice bit of floral fabric to spare. So, when your thrifting or rummaging through Penneys finest, always keep in mind that length is no biggy (if your handy with a sewing machine/needle and thread) and if not, you could always get your mum/friend/sister to help you!

Here’s the quickest tutorial I think I will ever make!
If you have any confusions or questions don’t be scared to leave me a little message below:)

This is important so you don’t get your pen lines on the front of the fabric! I used charcoal.

It’s always safest to cut the fabric longer than you want. Your going to be hemming it anyway. And it’s better than being too short!

Use hat pins to turn this over or straighten it with your GHD’s like I do!

If you don’t have a machine use a needle and thread and take it slowly.
Afterwards, turn it right ways in and find the cutest cardigan and boots to go with your newly refashioned dresslet :)
