Day 337: Art Collector Dress

Day 338: Spoleto Dress
Day 336: Into the Garden Top

Wow!  Check out this mumsy number!  :/

Oooooh! Sweet collar….not! :P

As you can see, I’m not entirely thrilled about this dress, folks.  It’s made of a lovely lightweight linen (perfect for a hot SC day), and that coral hue is just delightful.  But I can’t get over that flippin’ collar!  :/

An amputation is in order, friends.

It’s a mercy killing, I swear! :)

Okay!  That ugly collar is gone, freeing up what is actually a very pretty V-neck.  :)  But something had to be done about that length!


I couldn’t just leave that raw edge fraying all over the place, so under the needle it went!  :)

A brand new day & a brand new hem!

I’m almost done!  :)  This dress, though shortened and de-collared was still waaaay to big for me.  Not to worry!  I wrapped those weirdo side sash thingies around me twice and tied them in the front.  Problem solved!  I rolled the sleeves up twice, and was good to go!

I headed off to the Tapp’s Art Center for their Pretty Girls Presents Concept: Consumerism Art Show.

Gotta have art! :)

See that yellowy/orangey piece behind me?  I actually ended up buying it!  :)  Not buying any new clothes this year has really freed up my art budget!  ;)

She made that apron herself! :)

You should go to this! :)

Cheers!  :)



  1. Lovely and I agree, such a great colour. You´d be oroud of me, just did a post on a skirt refashion (from too small to just right)!

  2. Does Your Friend have a website? Because that apron is GENIOUS!

  3. Okay really loving this one too!!! I can see me wearing something like this to work. I have two dresses I recently bought from the thrift store and was just going to have them altered a little bit to fit, but now I ‘m thinking of possibly doing something a little more drastic. Maybe I can send you pictures and you can give me your input? what do ya think?

  4. Just found your blog this week and am perusing for inspiration. I think this is one of my favorite refashions! Such very different looks and not too tricky!
