Ruffle Removal

Dear Dolls,

first of all, thank you so much for all the cute comments on my last post, that made me really happy! (^.^)

I'm currently in the middle of semester exams. While studying, I like to alternate between learning and sewing, it helps a lot with my concentration; I could never study efficiently for hours without break. So besides taking care of the orders for my etsy shop, I also made some smaller things for my own use, like mending and minor alterations. 
One thing I've altered is this jsk:

I've made it back in March 2011 (omg I'm getting old!) and I still like to wear it, it's super comfortable. However, lately the ruffles at the top became a bit too much, I wanted the neckline to be more simple and elegant. So I removed the ruffles, changed the neckline and sewed on some black lace trim.

The lace was a tiny leftover and was perfect in length and style for this project. I'm very happy how it turned out and looking forward to wear my renewed dress! (^.^)

I think that's a big benefit of being able to sew. Whenever I have a garment I don't like anymore, I usually change it until it pleases me again, which is almost as if I got something new (and I love getting new clothes, haha). But without spending a lot of money. So yay! (^.-)
