For some reason, when I attempted to take the “before” pics of this dress, the flash on my camera refused to go off. It’s as if it didn’t want anyone to see this extremely unattractive dress! :)
I love the funky contrasting print on the shoulders of this dress, plus it has pockets! I’m less than fond of those funky shoulder pads, the length, and the fact that I’m swimming in it!
I decided to take this dress in from the back so I could hold on to those side pockets. It’s all a part of my national “A Pocket is a Terrible Thing to Waste” campaign. ;)
I then ran my fin through my sewing machine! :)
I lopped off the fin-like appendage, and attacked that dress’ length!
Next came a new hem!
After a quick press for my new seam and hem, my new dress was all done!
This dress is definitely on the short side! Luckily today was a holiday and I didn’t have to work. My new dress was a fine length for whipping up a tasty dinner for my neighbors. :)
I made pork, roasted asparagus, and gnocchi with a gorgonzola cream sauce! T’was delish!
