Sewing Basics Series:: Shortening a Slit

I have had a dress in my closet for years that I haven’t worn.  It fits me like a glove, but the side slits are pretty high.  Like,”back when I was single” high.  Ok, so it might even be like, “back when I was in high school” kind of high.  For some reason I just never could part with this dress.  I knew there was a way I could wear it again (I even created a pattern out of it to make this dress).  So finally, after many moons, I just altered the slits to be a lot more “married woman chasing after my baby boys….not teenage boys” kind of slits.  So here you have it.  A short sweet tutorial that will let you wear all those gonnamakeitworkeventually kind of slit dresses.

Stop by tomorrow to see this dress in action.
