Walk on the Wilde Side Dress

RED Meets Purple!
Back to the Orchard Dress

I find the most awesome of prints in the most awkward of garments!  :)

This is how I dance/ why I never dance in public. :/

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!

Someone did NOT want these pads going anywhere!

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.

Mr. Spock tries to help

I couldn’t just leave that raw edge hanging out, so I pinned a new hem.

Using my sewing gauge to keep it even!

I ran my new hem through my machine…


…and now my dress is ready for a whimsically witty night of theatre!  :)

The blue tights make it just right! :)

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.

A fun & funky 60’s reboot!
“I’ve now realized for the first time in my life the vital Importance of Being Earnest.”

Of course, I didn’t go alone.  :)

Happy Theatregoers! :)

You can read my review of this Wilde (hehe) show right here.  :)
