Refashion Dress with Stripes!

Stripes are always Fun to work with! 

This dress is made of a jacket with a shawl collar and a top with long sleeves.

I started with the black top as basic body and kept the sleeves from the striped jacket.

I closed the front shawl collar of the jacket with a seam and turned it back-forward. Then it became a high-low skirt for the dress which I think is very nice.

The asymmetric collar is made of the last piece from the original shawl collar of the jacket.

The belt is very simple with a tie and tassels at the ends.

I think Sara looks fabulous in the dress💕

You can see how I have cut the top and the jacket:

It's nice to use old garments to make something new 😉
