Day 72: From Little Black Mess to Little Black Dress

Day 73: My Football Skirt
Day 71: A Sure-Bet Dress

Yay!  A new old lady dress!  As you know by now, every time I see one of these, I get giddy!  :)

A Little Black Mess

So…this isn’t very attractive for a fun Friday night.  :)  Let’s get to work, shall we?

First I chopped off the top of the dress.


Then I folded the raw edge over and pinned it.

Pin it!

I ran the pinned edge through my machine.  Now I have a casing for some elastic to make the top nice and snug.  :)'s fantastic!

Now I have a super-cute little black dress…perfect for an evening hanging out with friends!

First, we swung by The Cigar Box

Which one shall I choose?

Then we spent some quality porch time.  :)

Cigars, Wine, and Friends...Ingredients for a perfect evening! :)

  1. Beautiful again! I saw orbs in your second to last pic. The “clinks” pic. It looks like your grandma and other spirits were enjoying the togetherness of the evening too. :-)

  2. Loved what you did with the black dress. I’ve been following your blog for a while now and love your creativity. If I could, I would use some of your ideas to add to my wardrobe, however, strapless is not for me. Your creativity intrgues me so I will continue to follow you journey. Thanks for sharing.
