Day 9 | Adding Length

via

Ever get tired of wearing a bazillion layers and tanks to add length to a shirt?  Did Hubby try to be sweet and accidentally put your favorite top in the dryer?  Wish that adorbs dress was just a smidgen longer or more modest?  Dude, you've come to the right place!

I'll be showing you a step-by-step this week on how I'm adding length to a basic tee.  Meantime, here's some inspiration to get you looking through your closet to see what you've got lying around begging to be worn again.

Love the cute fabric around the natural waistline of this basic tee.  Looks so cute and flattering now!

So many skirts I own would benefit from a couple inches of contrast fabric...

Ridiculously chic, and totally sew-able!

Super cute way to turn an ankle-length dress into a maxi dress!

So, have I got your thinking about something you'd like to refashion this week?  Don't forget to look through your closet and find some things that just aren't working.  You might be surprised how cute it can look!

Note:  Some of these images have tutorials, some are just inspiration pics, so feel free to clicky-click on the links to check it out!

P.S.  To keep all these ideas and tutorials super easy, we won't be using a serger.  As long as you can figure out how to thread a simple sewing machine you can do the projects!
