Day 310: Crawfish Fest Top

Day 311: Identity Crisis Dress
Day 309: 3 Step Dress

Well lookie here at this pretty silk skirt!  :)

It’s just an ordinary skirt, right?

And look at this!

Whoa!

Yep.  This is a Diane VonFurstenberg skirt that was donated to Revente’s Last Call.  Unfortunately, they couldn’t sell it because of this:

Wonky Stretched-Out Elastic! :/

You can see in the above pic where someone knotted the stretched-out elastic waistband to make it fit better.  I’m all out of thin elastic right now (gotta run to the craft store soon!), but my plan is just to replace it, and give the skirt back to RLC to sell.

…But that’s not really blog-worthy, now is it? :)

I put the skirt on my dress form upside-down and inside-out, pinning it with saftey pins on one shoulder.

Just a couple of pins is all you need!

I didn’t stitch it down, because I knew I wanted to keep this as a skirt.  Not to worry!  The pins were totally unnoticeable!  :)

I wore my new top to a friend’s place where we pre-gamed before heading off to the Rosewood Crawfish Festival!  :)

I think Diane would be pleased! :)

Someone didn’t want to be in this pic! :P

You gotta have friends! :)

Unfortunately, I completely underestimated how blazingly hot it was going to be outside!!!!  :/  Luckily, I always keep something to change into in my car (Does anyone else do this?).  This way if in my many adventures I end up spilling something on myself or needing a to change for any reason at all (Such as say…a Zombie Apocalypse), I’m prepared!  My thrifted cotton dress worked muuuuuch better for a day spent in the hot sun!  :)

I guess I really didn’t have to tell you any of that, but I wanted to share a couple of fun pics from this delightful day with you!  :)

4 Pretty Ladies! :)

It’s a GIANT CRAWFISH!!!! :) :) :)

Cheers!

    Love the “was skirt, not top”! ;-) You are very talented.
