Isn't she talented? I didn't get a full tutorial done, but the steps and pictures I do have will hopefully be enough for you to recreate this on your own.
Then she cut out the seam that connected the bodice to the skirt of the dress and then used the middle two layers for the skirt. (is this making sense with not many pictures?) There was elastic around the waistband that was stretchy enough to use as the waist of the skirt.
So next she put a hem on it. She ironed it over 1/4" and another 1/4" so that the raw edge was neatly tucked inside the fabric.
(See Picture Below)
Her final step was to take out some of the gathering in the seam holding the two ruffles of the skirt together. There were two different seams and it was making a funny bump. This one I don't have pictures for either and it is super hard to explain, but hopefully you won't run into that problem. =)
Well, I hope this tutorial has been helpful...now get to work refashioning your own dress! And many thanks to Abigail for letting me share all her awesome projects.
