OPA!!!!!

First day of Fall my ass.  While stores are pimping their sweaters and pea coats, temps are still in the 90’s here in Columbia, SC…hence my pick for today.

Pineapple = Flavor of the Day!

 

 How weird is that solo pocket???  There is an anti-lefty bias going on here, and I shall not stand for it!  

I needed a cute lil dress to wear for a verrrry funny lady’s birthday cookout after work…and time was against me (time = my bf constantly reminding me that we reallllllly needed to get going soon so we wouldn’t be late).  Not to fear.  I had a plan! 

First off, I seam ripped off the sleeves…

 Then I pinned the raw edges of the armholes under and sewed them down…

Pinned and ready to go under the needle!

 

 Then, I put the muumuu back on and measured from the hips, waist, and boobies where I’d need to take it in.  I pinned it accordingly, and under the needle it went!

 Once it was sewn, I trimmed off the edges…

 Then I removed some of that length so my calves could come out and party too (bug bitten though they may be from this endless summer)…

I did a quick little hem…

 Oh, and you have no way of knowing this, but Andrea is a ReFashionista, too!  she made that gorgeous top she’s wearing out of a skirt!  A skirt!!! That red is just stunning on her!  🙂
