I found some what I thought were some lovely dresses online a few years ago. They fitted my top half fine but must have been made for people with no shame, as they hardly covered my nether regions. So they ended up in my wardrobe unloved.

I loved the colour of this aqua strapless dress, and was wearing it as a skirt for a while until I noticed the frilly hem was falling off.


I think I could have sewed it back on but decided those frills had never been my style anyway.








So I unpicked them off with my trusty unpicker.














The edge of the unpicked seam was still in good overlocked condition so I just turned up the edge and sewed it down with matching thread.












Now I love wearing it as it is definitely a top length, not a dress, so hopefully will get some more wear out of it this hot summer!
