Merry Christmas everyone! 🙂 I needed a nice holiday frock for spending time with my wonderful Fella and friends!
I began with this:
I picked this dress from one of my fave $1 thrift stores…mostly because it was handmade (I’m very partial to handmade things). It was going to need some work though.
First, I carefully ripped off those sleeves.
Then, I sewed up those raw edges.
So…now those sleeves were all taken care of, but I still needed to shed about 2″ from each side of the dress.
I trimmed off the extra fabric, grabbed a green sash from my stash, and was all ready to host a Christmas Drop-in!
…except…I changed into a Tshirt and jeans (d’oh!). 😉
