Have a long/midi dress in your closet that you never wear? Try this trick to update your look!

 
 

Seam rip

CAREFully Seam rip the sides of the dress to your desired length of slit. try to make sure you don't rip anything else besides the thread connecting the 2 sides. 

 

new heights

Decide how high you want the slit to be. 

I pair mine with high waisted pants so I made mine the length of a crop top (approx. 15 inches).

 

 

sew a little or a lot

Sew along the new slits with a zig zag stitch. reinforce the sewing at the point between the old seam and new slit to make sure the slit stays in place.
