This old thing?

So I've become obsessed with watching Dawn O'Porter's This Old Thing on ABC2. Inspired, I realised I have a lovely FCUK dress I wish was longer.

Since I've been doing more sewing in the years since my first dress making attempts (fails) I felt confident I could take a bash at it.

The hem had an extra piece behind it to line it. This was 3.5in wide, perfect for lengthening in the same pretty print fabric!!

Then I hit my stash and found some navy silk from a previous project! This became my new lining of the hem and became a nice little peak of feature when I'm sitting.

I also fixed the sash loops and a small gap in the side seam where the stitches came loose.

Check it out! Much more ladylike.
