Fast and easy dress redesign

I have had this dress from H&M since I was 14 years old and therefor feel like it is time for a update of the dress. I am in love with backless dresses, and therefor wanted to make the back more interesting. I started with making the dress where my bra went.  Then i marked å path i wanted for the back of the dress.

Then I simply cut out the fabric 0.5 cm from the path. Remember when you cut over the zipper to have the zipper open!

After cutting away the fabric I sew on a edging around the opening.

Finished under 40 minuts! Fast and easy update!

Please comment if you have done something similar or if you have something else to say!

Easter egg remake

En stund siden påske nå, men jeg poster dette påske egget som jeg lagde i år likevel til insperasjon. Det fra et 1 kroners påske egg fra Nille. Det jeg gjorde var å lime på noe stoff jeg hadde ved påføre steinlim på hele egget. Deretter påførte jeg et blondebånd langs kanten og limte på noen tråderrundt egget. Voilà!


I know it is some time since Easter but I wanted to post this Easter egg either way. It is made of an ordinary cheap Easter egg. I transformed the egg  by simply gluing on the fabric with a strong glue, then adding the lace on the sides and ribbons around the egg. Voilà!
