Liz likes elephants. Liz’s grandmother knows this, so she gave her this:
While the thought behind this gift was very sweet, Liz felt guilty for keeping this muumuu that she knew she’d never wear, so she gave it to me! :)
I was thrilled! I looooove a good muumuu refashion!
I also loved those elephants, but I didn’t love that stark black-and-white color combo. You can probably guess what I did first!
I knew I couldn’t handle this busy of a print on a dress, so I did a bit of chopping!
Next, I began taking my new top in!
I ended up losing the pockets, but concessions must be made!
My new top was looking better, but I didn’t like those poufy sleeves, so I cut them off!
As I cut the second sleeve, I managed to make quite a mess of it. :/
That’s what happens when you’re snipping late at night while watching Sherlock episodes on Netflix.
I certainly managed to Cumberbotch that up, eh (har har!)? :D
I restitched that messed-up seam, and was back in business!
I pinned my new arm holes down, and stitched them up as well!
After adding a hem to the bottom of my new top, I was ready to head out to a friend’s art show! :)
I recently interviewed Michael for my column in MidlandsBiz, and I was really excited about his show!
His paintings were just as awesome as I expected them to be!
I even managed to snag a couple of pics of the artist himself!
While perusing, I ran into my fellow Theatre Critic, August!
If you live in Columbia, SC and would like to see more of Michael’s work, be sure to swing by HoFP Gallery!
