Of Montreal Dress

Don’t let the title get you too excited for me, friends!  While today’s post does involve travel, it’s not to Montreal, but the significantly closer Athens, GA!   A pal of mine suggested getting out of dodge to see of Montreal at 40 Watt.  I was in!  I just needed something to wear for a mini road trip/concert…

Here we go!

Time is running out to rock more wintery refashions, so I’ve gotta start churning through my stash!  :)  I love the harvest colors in this dress, and the thick polyester fabric (hello, warmth!).

I put the dress on my dress form inside-out and pinned each side to take it in…

Getting it perfectly fitted!

Then, I stitched it up!

Whirrrrr!

I still wasn’t happy with the length, so some of that went too.

Chop!

And here it is now!  :)

Loving those happy orange hues!

Peeps at Trappeze didn’t get to see much of my fab frock, as I was keeping cozy under my teal jacket.

Mmmmn!  Cider!

Mmmmn! Cider!

Then we got to 40 Watt!

Wait...what's a meat puppet????

…Where I worried I might not be hip enough for the crowd.  :/

Instant Hipster!  Just add ironic hat & PBR!

The headliner was awesome, but I really enjoyed the incredibly fun opener, Yip Deceiver!

These guys!

This was my first time visiting Athens, and I can’t wait to come back!  What a fun town!

Cheers!
