I love Kaftans! You could definitely say I’m Kaftan Krazy, because any time I find on hanging on the $1 rack at one of my fave thrift stores, I just have to scoop it up! You can imagine my glee at finding this sweet numba!
Of course, I can’t go out for a fun Friday night looking like this! First, I pinned each side about 3″ in. It is time for some lipo!
Next, I ran each side through my machine. I stitched it in black thread so you can see it clearly. :)
I trimmed off that extra fabric with my pinking shears, then tackled that length! I always do this after taking the dress in, because the dress always becomes shorter in the taking-in process. If I chopped off the length first, I might end up with something too scandalously short to actually wear!
My dress was really taking shape! I gave the bottom a brand new hem.
After pressing the whole thing, I was set for an awesome evening!
I was feeling particularly snazzy that night in my sexy high heels!
That was until I tripped and tossed my drink in my face in the process of crashing to the ground! D’oh! :/
Not the best start for the night, eh? What can ya do? I towled off, and was just fine! Don’t worry folks…nothing was hurt except my pride! :)
I had a blast hanging out with my friends and watching the comedic stylings of The Art Bar Players. Huzzah!
