Thank goodness modern re-fashioning techniques are significantly more advanced than in this delightful clip from 1926! There's no sound but if there was it would be something like: "Get your scissors, hack this bit off here, the sleeves off there, pin this on here and ... ta da! Finishing? I don't know what you mean."
They've desecrated a perfectly nice dress. To be fair the final dress looks OK from a distance. What do you think?
Still no sewing around these parts. The renovations are slowly taking shape though!
