I have holes on my dress

I have holes on my dress

Due to my newest addiction to knitting and crocheting and the dropping temperature in the sewing room, I’d been taking a break from the sewing machine for quite some time. But yesterday, I suddenly got the urge to sew again, so I made this quick project. The fabris is the same type as my husband’s and Sidra’s long-sleeved shirts, only that mine is grey.

This is sort of my experiment in making a clothing that can be worn in more than one way. It started as a long dress with empire line. I traced a long-sleeves shirt of mine to make the pattern of the top part. The lower part is just a wide rectangle sewed on the sides. Then I cut two big holes near the bottom of the dress, using a plastic container as a guide. There you go!

Now I can wear it as a long dress with mysterious holes on the side, and when I don’t want to trip over, I just fold the lower part and slip those holes on my shoulders. As the fabric doesn’t fray a bit, I left the necklines and hem just the way they are.

Not really a winter outfit, I suppose. But I really like it!

      Thank you! I bought the necklace in 2007 from a seller at etsy.com with the id Paraphernalia.
      She’s no longer there but I think you can buy the necklace from her website: http://paraphernalia.nu/ :)

    This is so awesome. It reminds me of one of the contestants on Australia’s Project Runway (I forgot what the official name is called). She used to make clothes that were multi-wearable also.

    Hi Allison, actually I made the dress myself :)

    Xiao Xian, I have to admit that I don’t really know. It just popped into my mind. Maybe I’ve seen a lot of versatile clothing recently :)

    Thank you, Karen! Glad that you like it!
