Some Refashioning

My favorite project today: my black and white striped dress!

I was really excited when my sister gave it to me
because I've been looking for something to go with my new black tights.
But when I tried it on, it was a too baggy, too frumpy, a little outdated,
and just all-over too plain.

Now that it's done and I like it so much, I REALLY wish I'd gotten a better before picture.
I cut the collar off, cut a few inches off the hem,
and used the cut-off material to make interfacing for the collar
so that it wasn't a raw edge or a turned hem.
I'm one pair of black boots away from a smokin' hott outfit!
