Here’s a super-comfy shapeless/dated dress!
Not much to dig here. The length is lousy. As I said, it has no shape. It’s just not terribly exciting, now is it?
Luckily, all it really needs is a few chops!
That very bottom bit was chopped off to remove an ink stain that didn’t come out in the wash. The next-up bit was going to come in pretty handy. See those buttons on the side? They’re totally functional!!!
I used the button-up part to make a belt by wrapping it around my waist twice.
I’m pretty happy with this no-sew tunic, I must say!
No need to hem, as Jersey doesn’t fray!
I think my sweet vintage brooch looks swell with my new top!
My new top had a fun mellow evening with friends.
…like Ryan here!
We even crafted a tasty fall cocktail with ginger beer, whiskey, and…other things????
Cool pose. Bad lighting.
Remember the Trace & Stitch Dress I refashioned for my trip to Asheville a few months ago? Here…let me jog your memory.
I dug the dress, but just couldn’t come up with a good way to save the jacket part…until a surprisingly chilly day when my little Douglas didn’t want to go outside, that is!
First, I cut off one of the sleeves!
A simple chop!
Then, I cut a hole through both sides of the sleeve that was big enough for Dougie’s legs to fit through.
THEN, I trimmed off the part of the sleeve that was too long for my pup. :)
Just one more chop!
Just look at my comfy cozy pooch now! :)
Snug & Warm!
This sleeve trick is great for Dachshunds, as they’re usually too long for normal dog sweaters. Normal dog clothes tend to make them look like little puppy strippers wearing midriff-bearing crop tops :/
Luckily, Dougie gets to stay classy AND warm during this cold snap! ;)
Thanks, Mom! :)
I am on a cider kick, my friend! :) Most of my beer snob pals turn up their noses at me as I blissfully sip what they call “apple juice”, but I just don’t care! Hard Cider is so incredibly tasty, refreshing, and my new favorite summer beverage!
When a friend texted me, telling me Windy Hill (a nearby cidery) was being featured at World of Beer, I wanted to dash out the door right away!
Unfortunately, I didn’t have anything to wear! :/ I needed a super-fast refash, STAT!
I chose this summery polyester dress for the evening:
I’m attempting a “Glamor Shots” pose here. It’s not really working out…
Check out the neck ties on this one!
Why would anyone tie these together???
I grabbed a small pair of scissors and got to snipping!
Snipping off those sleeves and that collar!
Farewell, oh Puffy One! :)
No, Douglas! NO!
Can’t forget these!
I took the snipped-off neck tie thingies and used them to cinch the top of each shoulder, like so:
And that’s it! A quick No-Sew dress is born!
Easiest Sundress Ever!
Most of the ciders were, of course, amazing!
This is Cider Night and feelin’s right!
Just chillin in the background…
Fancy a flight?
