How To Cut A Hoodie Into A Crop Top. And Much MUCH more!

#SewingSunday

This week was EXTREMELY productive for me. I executed two new dresses and had time for a DIY. Let’s start with the DIY!

I bought this hoodie sometime ago, the arms have always fit too tight but I still adored it. It’s been 80+ dregrees here in Georgia, so I decided I’d love my hoodie more if it were a crop top. I grabbed my favorite crop top to use as a template and went to work! I also reattached the pocket because a hoodie just isn’t a hoodie with out the kangaroo pocket.

Next I worked on the Millie Dress. She is the sister of the George TuTu. This one has gold roses underneath the tulle skirt. The intention of this dress is to incorporate the brides bouquet into the flower girl dress. I kinda flew by the seat of my pants on this design. I had no idea the colors or finish I wanted. After much debate and advice from a friend, I decided to use the mint bodice and tulle pleating for some dimension.  It came out WONDERFUL, just needs to be lined.

My my last project was the Evelyn dress. She is a hybrid of the Rosette dress. I chose gold satin because I’m working on an all gold collection I call Old Gold.

Thank you for visiting! Photoshoots for these items are coming soon! Until then…
