- Mar 5, 2011That sounds like a good plan, and a great way to save a perfectly good piece of garb. Just think, you'll have a "new" dress!
BTW, the sheep are SHORN!

The dress is an unfinished kirtle - unfinished in the fact that I have yet to be brave enough to make lacing holes and lace it up either front or back. So the question is this: Can I take a piece of contrasting cloth and make a stripe around the skirt at mid calf and probably at the bottom to match, effectively covering the tear and also dressing up the dress? And yes I will eventually add lacing holes. I was also thinking of taking that same contrasting color and adding sleeves that can be attached (it is a short sleeved kirtle now).
