'Tis The Season

I am currently working on projects left and right, cool projects, fun projects, projects that make me want to post tutorials and share them with the world! However, I cannot post a single on of them, and I find myself feeling this as a seasonal frustration. I am making Christmas gifts, and Christmas gifts have to be kept a secret, and therefore should not be posted on the web for the world (my family and friends) to see. 

Before and After

With that rant over, I will post a dress I just altered. I don't have a tutorial for what I changed on the dress. It really was very basic though, except for the fact that I added pockets. The pockets though were way easier to do than I expected them to be. I do have a tutorial for the pockets HERE. Other than that, I shortened the skirt, gathered the back a little to take it in, and sewed the shoulder's closed where they had a quite unnecessary and super outdated buttoning thingymabob... I don't even pretend to know what I'm talking about.

Close up on the pockets
If you have a longing for pockets, I would definitely urge you do go for it and slice into your favorite dress. Agian HERE is my tutorial, and there are others online for different styles. 

Back With Gathering 

Maybe after Christmas I'll post some of the things I've been working on... That doesn't usually happen though, does it?
