Day 98: Flowers on my Shoulders Vol. 2

Day 99: Enter the Sharpie
Day 97: Bowl me over Top

Let’s take a stroll down memory lane, shall we?  Remember Year 1 of this little blog, when I would go for weeks at a time without posting?  Do you remember this dress (and my sad-looking growing-out ‘do)?  :)

The dress and the 'do are both pretty awful. :/

Remember how I had that bottom scrap left over?


I took that bottom scrap and played with it a bit on my dress form, experimenting with drape.


In the pic above, you can see where I’ve pinned a line down one of the sides.

I stitched a singe seam along that pinned line…


and now I have a fun new top!

2 tops from 1 dress? Awesome sauce!

I’ve gotta say, I’m especially proud of myself for making not one, but two tops from one 50 cent dress!  :) I wore my fun new top to Mr. B’s Goodtime Karaoke Explosion, where a good time was indeed had by all!  :)

Good times!

Close-up! :)

It's Mr. B! :)

All that fun sure does make a gal hungry! :)




  1. I love how this one turned out – what a great print and you did something a little different too by experimenting with draping. Project Runway – here we come! You go girl – nicely done!
