How do you lose 30 pounds in one afternoon you ask? Well, a vigorous session of refashioning of course! Just take a look:
It’s amazing how wearing clothes that fit well can make all the difference in the world.
Let’s get busy working out our refashion muscles.
Gather up your workout gear and choose a thrift store dress.
This one happens to be a good brand name but way too huge and we have to get rid of all those unsightly gathers around the hip area.
Warm up by cutting away the skirt to create a new waistline. Then cut off the sleeves, pin the sides, and sew the new side seams.
Big breath in, big breath out…..
Now take it up a notch and take off all that extra fabric on the skirt by sewing new sides seams. Get those scissor muscles going and trim and trim.
Are you starting to feel thinner already? I am!
Be sure to keep breathing while you pin the bodice and the skirt.
Keep your right sides together.
Keep going, you can do it!
Put four small pleats in the front and gather in the back.
You’re almost there…..
Now feel the burn and cut the sleeves to the desired length.
Ready for the cool down now….. breathe in, breathe out…..and slowly, slowly pin and sew the sleeves back into the sleeve casing. Now slowly hem each sleeve….. stretch and breathe…..stretch and breathe.
YOU DID IT! 30 pounds lighter!!! In one afternoon.
I knew you could do it.
