Overall Dress Refashion
Its Refashion Month at House of Estrella!
Here’s my easy overall dress refashion tutorial. It takes 20 minutes or less, and very little sewing experience is needed.
We started with a perfectly respectable pair of overalls. There’s nothing wrong with them at all. I’ll just let Sofie’s face tell you how she feels about them.
It’s safe to say she ain’t feelin’ this outfit. So grab your scissors and thread your machine!
Overall Dress Refashion Tutorial
Cut your overalls in half, leaving the back pockets intact. Be careful not to cut the front pocket linings!
Determine the length and width of your skirt.
At this point, you can hem your skirt and/or finish your edges. (I chose not to hem my dress until I had my niece available to try it on.)
Pin the pocket linings up so they don’t get caught in the seam.
Sew a double row of gathering stitches in your skirt.
Pin your skirt to the overalls at the side seams; right sides together. Pull your gathers to fit. Pin a bunch more. Then stitch.
Here’s an inside view of my dress. I ended up using a bubble style skirt, which eliminated the need for a hem.
Now, we have a happy girl!!
Pretty simple, right? I have lots more sewing inspiration & tutorials on Pinterest, so feel free to check out my boards. If you’re visiting from House of Estrella, thanks so much for coming by! And if you’re already a friend, I hope you know how much I love your visits.
Until next time,
