Happy Monday Everybody! I did a few refashions over the weekend, so I’m just gonna hop right to sharing one of them with you, rather than doing the standard Q&A. I hope this is alright! :)
I began with this cool cotton number:
Oh geez…where do I begin? The length is horrible, and I hate the color. It’s also just a bit too big for me.
Last week, I put a synthetic dress in a yellow dye bath. It wasn’t alone!
Hopefully you all remember your elementary school art class where you learned that yellow and blue make green. In this case a VERY bright green! :)
One my dress was dyed and dried, I started taking it in from the back.
I ran the back through my machine…
…then I chopped off a good bit of that ooglay length!
A quick hem job followed!
I removed a couple ‘o bits from the sides of the dress, as I knew I’d want to style this dress with a belt.
Now that dress is done, and ready for a fun cookout with friends! :)
I have to say, one of my hosts is a pretty flippin’ awesome chef/food blogger. You can check out his blog, How To: Spend A Life, right here!
His girlfriend helped out a good bit, too. :)
The food was delish!
Good times, to be sure!
