Day 177: Cranberry Sauce Dress

Day 178: Merry Christmas!
Day 176: Hemlock Dress

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season.  🙂  Whether you’re spending it with your family, your chosen family, or your fur family, I really hope you’re surrounded by the ones you love!

I spent today with Fella and Gypsy, baking cookies, and being lazy (so nice!).

I wanted something comfy, but still pretty for our very casual Christmas Eve! I dug out this $1 find from my to-be-refashioned bin.  🙂

At least it has pockets! 🙂

Alrighty!  This is obviously waaay too big on me.  Luckily, all I needed to do was make a few amputations!

I wonder what I’ll do with these guys…:)

Triple Chop! 🙂

I took that bottom piece and turned it into an obi-style belt to give this dress a waist.  I left the sash part super-long…just to keep things interesting. 🙂

Still digging those pockets! 🙂

As you can probably surmise by my lack of a jacket, it’s still ridiculously warm here.  I’m definitely not complaining…I loooove warm weather, and hate being chilly!

    This is WONDERFUL! (By the way, in the north of England, people who feel the cold are referred to as “a bit nesh”).

    I love what you have done with this dress! What you did with the waist is really creative! Will definitely be on the lookout for something like this when I go thrifting tomorrow. Great job! Oh, and I was SO glad that it wasn’t too cold here in South Carolina. I hate the cold, but love things like cardigan sweaters to add to an outfit! Hope you had a Merry Christmas!

    Wouldn’t want a chilly Jilly! Here in SoCal a lot of people have fire going in the fireplace because it’s Christmas but it’s 80 degrees. Maybe they turn on the air conditioner so the fire doesn’t get to hot. Anyway, I’m with you. I love warm weather and thanks goodness. We both live in very warm to hot climate. Merry Christmas!
