Ever since I saw this sheer fashion trend on Spring/Summer 2014 Runway, I knew will DIY it. I was considering to sew a new top or skirt, but a few days ago I found again this open back purple dress.
I have worn that dress a few little times because it was too short for me and I’ve been worn it with a short pants inside it. I wish to wear this dress often because … you know how much I love open back dresses.
It’s been a while since my last refashion and I needed a ‘new’ dress for a wedding. So I bought one meter of sheer fabric and cut it 2 times the length I wanted and the same width with the skirt round.
Than I placed the fabric right side facing the right side of the dress and stick the edge together using a double-sided tape. This was my trick to sew that super thin sheer, pins will only move the sheer and make me crazy.
Finally, I fold the fabric inside and top stitched.
Even though the sheer length is a little bit awkward for a mini dress, I am happy with the result. I wanted to replace the ‘mini dress’ characteristic into more hippie or gypsy characteristic, and I guess I got it with that awkward length. 😉
I’ll see you soon!
