Everybody loves a great pencil dress, which is why I decided to refashion my never-worn-in-two years cami from J.Crew and create something I would more readily grab from my closet. Using a dress from my Refashion Challenge post as inspiration to recycle my old clothes, I created this dress by utilizing some left-over fabric from The Soo dress design in my 2012 Mid-Summer Collection. Even though it's really simple, I think it's a dress that will be super versatile, and since I was using materials I already had, it didn't cost me a dime. Score.
2. Enclose raw edge of top of skirt with bias tape and top-stitch to attach and finish.
3. Pin skirt to natural waistline of blouse and top-stitch 1/4 inch below bias tape. Leaving one inch free to fold under at zipper
4. Fold raw edge of skirt under at side seam even with zipper and pin.
5. Top stitch 1/4 inch from zipper edge to finish. DONE.
