Check out this lovely 2-piecer!
Talk about a BOGO! :) I’m a huge fan of this fun tropical print and the lightweight fabric of this thing. I’m not such a fan of the frumpy cut of the dress or the not-so-hot layering action!
Time to get this dress ready for a warm & beautiful day!
First, I cut the dress off near the top, right where it starts to get narrow.
Then, I hemmed the resulting raw edge!
Next, I cut two strips from the back of the jacket.
I stitched them both into tubes…
…and turned them right-side out!
I pressed my tubes, and pinned them onto my dress to make straps!
I stitched my new straps down, getting really excited about how this dress was turning out! :)
I hopped into my fab new frock and out the door to catch a performance of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)! Thankfully, there was no rain, and the show went on! :)
As you can see, I grabbed a leftover scrap to wrap around my head for a driving scarf (I drive a convertible). :)
It started to get a bit chilly, so I donned a cozy cardi in a complimentary color (such a sucker for alliteration!), as I began taking notes for my review of the show!
