Day 343: Fab Foodie Dress

I’ve had today’s piece for quite a while.  I really wasn’t quite sure what I’d be able to do with it!  :/

See what I mean? You’d be intimidated too!

By the way, don’t let that fence behind me fool ya.  My neighbors can totally see me when I do my before pics outside.  They probably think I’m insane!  :)

Anywho…back to this insane muumuu!  I chose it for its cute foodie print.  :)

Yum! :)

Sadly, this thing is just flippin’ huge on me!  I decided to take it in from the back…a LOT!  On my dress form it went!

Seeeee?

Then, I sewed a single seam down my pinned line.

Whirrrr!

This left me loads of extra fabric to snip off!

Wow!

Okay…so now my new dress is looking much better and size-appropriate!  But, I still needed to hike up the length a good bit more.

Chop & Hem! :)

Check that wonky muumuu out now!  :)

Such a fun little frock! :)

Now I just need to wear it to the grocery store! :)

This comfy cotton dress is just the thing for a hot SC day!  :)

Fun with camera filters! :)

Cheers!
