This is a Newlook Workroom (Project Runway) sewing pattern and it began as a Kimono Dress with an Obi belt which I made from a lovely silk crepe fabric. Although there was nothing wrong with the dress, I only wore it once.
As a dress, it did not feel right on me, probably because the skirt is straight (I prefer an A-line skirt), but as I really like the fabric and did not want to give it away or bin it, I altered it to become a top. As a top, it feels right and suits me. I also reduced the width of the sleeves.
It goes to show that a garment which does not work for you can be altered so it does.
Have you altered a garment to suit you?
