DIY Wool Dress Refashion

How the dress looked its a great Wool Dress but the sleeves where 3/4 length and the dress went over my knees (not my fave)

What you need:
Thread (same color as the dress)
Needle
Measuring tape
Scissors
Pins

How to:
1: put the dress on and mark where you're going to cut.
2: Take off the dress and lay it flat.
3: With chalk and the measuring tape make your line more visible for cutting. (Make sure your lines are straight)
4: When your happy with your lines cut them slowly.
5: With your pins create a hem by folding over the edges and pinning it in place.
6: Sew the pinned areas (make sure the dress is inside out)

#Make sure the dress is inside out so any Tangle's or mistakes are on the inside no one sees.
#Be careful when handling the pins they can be a bit fiddly.
#Always remember cut too less off you can always adjust later.
