Sewing Off the Cuff

So, over the weekend I found a dress that I just loved at Good Will. After trying it on I was unsure if I should get it since it was beyond my comfort zone length-wise. I ended up getting it thinking I could at least use it for a night gown. Well this morning I got to thinking that all I really had to do is add some length to it and I could wear it as I originally wanted to.

I looked into my scrap material pile {which is rather limited} and I found some pant legs I cut off some lounge pants that had a hole in them that matched the grey perfectly that was in the dress. I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out, but I gave it a try anyway.

 As it turns out, I pulled it off! I added about three inches to the length which brought it about an inch above my knee! It looks pretty good for an amatuer seamstress! And I can wear it like I wanted to!
