Snip to a New Look
I have a favorite baby doll dress that's been too worn out. Here's what I did to refashion it.

( sorry I didn't take photos of the process, but it is really quite simple ! )

  • Step 1

    On my baby doll dress, there is a seam right under the bust. That will be the point you will cut to. ( that is , don't cut the seam, just cut to the point a underneath it.)

    Also, my dress is the same fabric as tshirts. Don't think it will work on other fabrics.

  • Step 2

    Snip off the bottom hems of the dress.

    Then starting from one side, cut from the bottom up to the bust seams.

    The strands are about 2 cms wide.( I did not measure, just eyeballed it. Really, it's okay, imperfection adds to the look.)

  • Step 3

    When you have cut completely around the dress, pick up a couple strands in your hand and give them a tug.

    Do this to all the strands. This will make the fabric curled into itself and somewhat fix the length.

  • Step 4

    Now put the dress on, stand in front of a mirror and style it.

    You can do diagonal, even length, short , long, whatever that looks good on you.

    For my diy, I left 3 strands in its original length and tied it together.
