Sundress Or Maxidress=Mock Wrapdress

A too short sun dress and a too revealing top on a maxi dress.

Cut the top off the maxi and then cut a section about 18 inches thick. Next about 4 inches from the arm holes cut the sun dress straight across into two sections.

Next I found a great edge stitch on my new sewing machine. O:) Thanks to my big brother in Christ Jim.
Then join the top part of the sun dress to the top part of the tube right sides together. This stitch has stretch so it worked great. CAM00011[1]
Thought I’d show you a picture of my new machine. It is a singer LCD with air controlled pedal. And when i get the top down Jim and I are gonna take it for a ride. O:) just joking Jim said it was fully loaded!!!

Oppsey I wore the dress and forgot to take a picture of it completed.

Well then rights sides together sew the bottom of the sun dress to the bottom of the tube piece. You do need to be aware of the seams and keep them aligned with each other. Now the section I call the tube was a little larger on the bottom section because of the taper of the maxi dress, and lack of taper in the sundress. So there was a over lap of fabric to one side. Well I used the straps for the maxi dress to make a belt and tied the dress off to that side. It came out great. Sorry about the wrinkles I wanted you to see the finished work.

Awww you got a little kitties shadow under the dress, and there is a close up of the belting . Seeing it like this I gotta say it looks better on because it hangs great and hits the right length.
God’s grace, peace, light, and love to you always. In Jesus’ service Doreen✞ ✞ ✞
