I find the most awesome of prints in the most awkward of garments! :)
Take this weird fake wrap-around number with all sorts of gorgeous technicolor foliage!
This frock really didn’t need much work to be wearable. First, I had to deal with these guys, who were not only stitched in, but pinned in as well!
Then, I went after some of the length. I decided to go for an uneven bottom hem…sort of a sarong-ish look. My roomie’s cat seemed to approve of this idea.
I couldn’t just leave that raw edge hanging out, so I pinned a new hem.
I ran my new hem through my machine…
…and now my dress is ready for a whimsically witty night of theatre! :)
As most of you know, I’m a theatre critic for Jasper Magazine. Tonight, my assignment was to watch and review Theatre South Carolina‘s production of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest.
Of course, I didn’t go alone. :)
You can read my review of this Wilde (hehe) show right here. :)
