I have a lightweight (almost scarf material) summer wrap dress I bought several years ago while on a cruise in the Caribbean. I love the fabric, but I always felt a little exposed. The dress draped over the front and tied like an apron, then did the same but in reverse to cover the back side. I was always afraid my sides were showing, or that it was a little too short.
So, I decided to make a trapeze top out of it. With this particular fabric, it will flow nicely, look great with jeans, and be a little more secure.
I put the dress on and marked where the armscye should close.
Once I evened everything out and sewed the new sides together, I realized that with the weight of this fabric, only a rolled hem would do, so I for out my trusty rolled hem foot.
The completed top came out pretty cute!
