My husband is wrong and my husband is right!!

upcycling clothes
I completed a refashion of my original refashion!!!

The first refashion
1. My husband is right. Yes the dress did not quite work, I still don't think it is perfect and as flattering as some things I have made but I have now worn it twice and enjoy doing so.
