Got off to a reasonably good start with my pledge. First I dug out this dress I made from the Burdastyle Anda pattern back in March last year. I always felt it was a bit frumpy and I didn't like the sleeves which were too long. To refashion it I took some length off the hem and shortened the shoulder seams by adding some thin elastic about half the length of the seams to gather them up. It's still not perfect. If I make this pattern again I am definitely going to try to reduce the size of the bodice and do something with the sleeves.
My second refashion was a knee length dress from River Island. I got it in a sale and loved its details but the length was very unflattering on me. I forgot to take a before picture but remembered as I was cutting the hem so decided to take a picture then to show how much length I was taking off.
