Today’s piece comes from a land down under! And yes – You’d better run. You’d better take cover! :)
You haven’t even seen the best part yet!
I pretty much died laughing when I opened Mairi’s package. She certainly gave me quite a challenge! :)
Alright…as I’m not into Victorian Cosplay, these unmentionables were going to require a complete overhaul!
First, I reached into my dye stash and pulled out this:
Into a nice, hot bath of dye the bloomers went!
After a rinse & dry, I realized that dyeing this in the machine had a negative consequence. :/
Thee good news was, not all of the lace was damaged, just the outer layer. Not a terrible thing. I went ahead and chopped it off from both legs. I went ahead and snipped off those back ties while I was at it.
I took the waist band, doubled it over, and pinned it together inside-out.
A quick bit of stitchery followed.
Now those weirdo bloomers are a fun & funky shrug! :)
Thanks so much for sending this crazy thing my way, Mairi!!!! :)
