Hi there! It’s been a little while. I have some updates on my end. David and I are now married! Eeeek! Worry not, there will be posts to follow that have pictures and more details. I doubt you were actually worrying, but anywho.
Now on to today’s topic, this sweater dress, or sweatshirt dress.
I picked this dress up at Target in October for a STEAL! I thought it was a little long and a little shapeless though (I have a tendency to buy things I am not 100% content with when they are super cheap), so I decided to alter it at the waist to add some definition and take up some length.
I created a drop waist by simply folding up 2 inches of fabric a few inches below my natural waist and stitching in a seam to hold in place.
You can see that I didn’t pin following the stripe. I did that on purpose so that the waist would stand out a little more. If you wanted a more tailored and discreet effect you could line the stripes up evenly.
The finished product came out perfect in my opinion!
It is a little shorter and has a little bit more shape, but still fits loose enough to be comfy and casual.
What I am wearing:
Target Dress (unfortunately it’s not on sale anymore), Nine West booties (similar), necklace (in lapis)
