Day 45:  Black & White & Cool All Over 2
Nice shoulder pads!

I just love an old lady dress refashion, don’t you?Β  πŸ™‚

I loved the print and the pockets, but this dress needed lots of help!Β  First off, I removed those shoulder pads (yay! More toys for shelter kitties!) and that weirdo fake shirt panel.

Yo fake shirt...you're not fooling anybody!

Then, I chopped off the sleeves and some of the length.

Choppy Choppy!

I actually ended up completely removing the sleeves….so just imagine they aren’t there at all.Β  πŸ™‚

Next, I hemmed the skirt.

Pin, then hem!

I took the upper part of the shoulders of the dress, and folded them under.Β  Then, I sewed them down.

Narrowing those shoulders!

I pressed everything, and was done!Β  Now that old lady dress is ready for a fun Saturday!Β  πŸ™‚

Whatever shall I do today?

After making my sweet frock, I got to work on bottling a batch of Ginger Beer!

Ginger Beer!

I got the recipe here.Β  I can’t wait to see how my Ginger Beer turns out!Β  Hopefully they won’t end up exploding all over my kitchen.Β  πŸ™‚

That night, I met up with friends at The Nickelodeon, where we watched the incredibly funny Brit flick, The Trip.

After watching this film, I’m yearning to go on a foodie road trip of my own.Β  I think I’ll have to make that happen soon!Β Β  Hopefully my finances can handle the dances.Β  πŸ™‚
