After an overwhelming response to the fashion hack I did on The Fabric Stores Little Black Dress for charity, I decided to create a video tutorial and free downloadable pattern so that you can make one at home too!
I purchased my two dresses for $25 each, and $7 from each dress will support Orange Sky – a Brisbane Charity that helps to positively connect people experiencing homelessness through free laundry, showers and conversation.
This hack is pretty simple and is suitable for beginners to established sewers. It involves first hemming the maxi dress and transforming it into a cocktail length. Next, you use the excess fabric from the hem to create two ruffles which are then topstiched onto the dress. Piece of cake!
I’ve created a free downloadable PDF pattern of the shoulder frill right here – Shoulder Frill Pattern
