Hello there! Notice anything different? I’ve been making a few tweaks around the ol’ blog lately. How does it look so far? I figured it was time for a few changes to make it look less clunky and (hopefully) easier to navigate. :)
My blog isn’t the only thing that needs tweaking, though!
This fuchsia top is awesome in color and comfy in fabric, but not exactly what I had in mind for an evening hanging out with my friends in style!
I decided to turn it into a dress! First, I had to remove those pads!
Then, I pinned the sides to get it nicely narrowed!
I stitched up both sides…
…but I still had a little problem. Because this was intended to be a top, not a dress, the space below the bottom button was happy to flap in the breeze. As I didn’t want to risk showing more than needed to be seen, I stitched this down, too!
I threw my new dress on, rolled up those sleeves a bit more, tossed on a belt, and was ready for a fun night with friends!
I look forward to Columbia’s Vista Lights celebration every year! My friends and I have been going to this terrific kickoff to the holiday season for as long as I can remember. Our favorite part of the event is the premiere of that year’s Beaujolais Nouveau!
We had a blast sipping wine and wandering about the Vista– checking out the many stores, art galleries, restaurants and bars.
