This dress totally looks like a hospital gown. :/
It actually isn’t though. It’s a lovingly (?) handmade smock thing with a really crazy print!
As I don’t relish the idea of looking like an escapee from a mental health ward, there was a bit of work to do here!
First, I put the dress inside-out on my dress form, and began pinning the sides to make it fit. :)
The arm holes were both ripped, but this wasn’t a big dealio, as I took them in a bit too!
I ran each side under the needle…
…then chopped off some of that awkward length!
Alrighty! I’m sooo close to being done! I gave the bottom a new hem, like ya do.
I pressed the whole thing, and was ready to run out the door just in time to make it to a viewing of the Japanese film, Battle Royale.
This movie is pretty flipping awesome. If you’re into The Hunger Games, you should really check this out.
We certainly enjoyed it! :)
…and we weren’t the only ones! :)
