When Fella saw me in this dress, he informed me that it made me look like a miniature Bea Arthur.
While I’m a huge fan of Bea, and all her Golden Girl pals, I don’t think I should let them inform my style choices too much. :)
To get started, I ripped out some really strange shoulder paddage.
Then, I made a great big chop!
Do you see where I’m going here? :)
I folded that top part under twice, pinned it, and stitched it down, leaving a small unsewn place in the front.
I grabbed a completely contrasting sash from another dress and worked it through the casing (with the help of a trusty safety pin).
And that’s it! I tossed on a belt and headed off into the night! :)
I could have easily just worn this piece as a dress, rather than a tunic. I was just feeling a tad modest this evening. :)
I really like the blue/brown combo and the contrasting prints on the sash and the tunic. :)
While out, I ran into a few fun friends…
…and one mortal enemy. :/
