Day 48: Yikes! Stripes!

Day 49: To Mike, With Love
Day 47: A Sleepy Scarf

I don’t know exactly how to preface this oddball, so…um…er…

Check this out!  :)


Is anybody else thinking of this blast from the past?

Yikes! Stripes!

I don’t even remember actually liking the taste of this stuff.  I just thought the stripes were really cool.  :)

However, as far as this dress goes, I need a little less stripeage.  :)


I’m going to forget about the top part for now, and work with that stripey skirt.  I decided to turn the bottom of the skirt into the top of a new dress!  :)

It didn’t quite fit me, so I added elastic, using the existing hem as a casing.

Elastic! It's Fantastic!

I threaded it through using my oh-so-handy safety pin, and then sewed the elastic together.

Next, I hemmed the raw edge at the bottom.  :)

Stitchy Stitchy!

I think I’ve removed the Yikes Factor, don’t you? :)

No Yikes...Just Stripes!

I took a break from work to stroll over to KC Hotdogs for a tasty Veggie Carolina Dog! :)

Le Nom!

  1. Hi, I found you over at Refashion Co-op and had to come over to say what a great job you’ve done. That first photo really made me laugh!
