Refashioning: Sun dress's new life

Hi there! Long time no talk. I've had a pretty busy past couple of weeks preparing my newest summer collection. Yesterday I finally had it photographed with the amazing ladies Jirina and Fiona from Pin Up Helsinki. It's always a pleasure working with talented people as things got done in no time at all. I can't wait to show you the results! Now I can finally breathe as I know things are moving forwards.

What I actually wanted to talk about was this old sun dress I had had laying around for a while. Actually I have a huge pile of clothes waiting to be modified in one way or another, but this one was easy to make this evening as it didn't require much time or effort.

I love the fabric on this dress and I wore it for one summer, but I think it's a little too childish, if you know what I mean. So I took my scissors and chopped off the 2 bottom ruffles. Then I just finished the edge and ta-dah! Now I have a cute summer top to wear with high waist skirts and trousers.
