Oh We Oh We Oh!

I love that crazy jungle print!  Unfortunately, that’s about all this dress has going for it right now.  :/

Let’s get to it!

First, I cut out those icktastic pads!

Then, I did a good bit of choppage!

Of course, I’m not going to leave those raw edges, so I got to pinning.

On a complete side note:  Check out Nick and his awesome puppet!  My friend Sam makes these amazing puppets as gifts for his friends’ bdays and such.  🙂  He makes the clothes out of thrifted/damaged clothing.  How cool is that?  🙂

    Well, you look like a pretty, very petite person. It is a lot easier to refashion things when you are small because most everything is bigger and has extra material that gives you more options to do something different with it. It is a lot harder to find things to make over when you are a “full figure” woman. Not many things have that extra fabric to give you options and lets face it, cutting things off – hems and sleeves – just gets boaring for a full figured woman. We can’t wear these little short, strapless, sleeveless numbers with elastic holding them up that you are so talented in designing. How about, now and then, you grab a friend that is larger and do something for a “full figure” woman just to mix things up and show off your talents.

    You amaze me with how you can turn anything into something wearable. I never would have seen the potential in that dress. Love, love, love your blog. Thanks for the daily inspiration!
