Years ago, when I was maybe 15, my mom sewed me a sundress. Since I have a long torso the waist was a little short, and I was too self conscious to wear something that not everyone else was wearing. I kept it, though, planning to at least reuse the fabric. I unpicked the main seams a couple years ago.
Now I'm gong to sew it back together, adding a waistband for extra length if necessary. It's a cute fabric, a polished cotton floral, with cut-on sleeves and a gathered skirt. The buttonholes have already been worked all the way up the center front, with pink flower buttons. If I can finish it quickly I'll be able to wear it this summer :) We're having hot weather and tomorrow seems like a perfect day to stay indoors and whip up a sundress.
