Have you ever found a cute dress or skirt that's just a few inches too short? Or shrunk your favorite skirt in the wash? I have found a fabulous solution to that problem, a dress extender! This can be easily be made for under 5.00!!
What you will need:
1.) Half or Full Slip (can be found at Goodwill or local thrift store for 1.99)
2.) Wide lace or eyelet(Hobby Lobby sells a roll of lace precut in the ribbon section for just 1.99)
3.) Sewing machine, needle and thread or adhesive bond
4.) Straight pins
5.) Measuring tape
First, measure from your waist to the bottom of your knee to find the desired length for your slip. Lay your lace down on the slip, pin the lace to hang at whatever length works best for you. Now, depending on what you have to work with either sew, hand stitch, or take your adhesive bond and attach your lace to the bottom of the slip. Make sure you leave enough at the ends of the lace to over lap just a few inches. Now go try on your favorite dress with your new dress extender!
