Hooray for old lady dresses! :)
I just love an old lady dress refashion, don’t you? :)
I loved the print and the pockets, but this dress needed lots of help! First off, I removed those shoulder pads (yay! More toys for shelter kitties!) and that weirdo fake shirt panel.
Then, I chopped off the sleeves and some of the length.
I actually ended up completely removing the sleeves….so just imagine they aren’t there at all. :)
Next, I hemmed the skirt.
I took the upper part of the shoulders of the dress, and folded them under. Then, I sewed them down.
I pressed everything, and was done! Now that old lady dress is ready for a fun Saturday! :)
After making my sweet frock, I got to work on bottling a batch of Ginger Beer!
I got the recipe here. I can’t wait to see how my Ginger Beer turns out! Hopefully they won’t end up exploding all over my kitchen. :)
After watching this film, I’m yearning to go on a foodie road trip of my own. I think I’ll have to make that happen soon! Hopefully my finances can handle the dances. :)
