Day 212: A’dress’ing a Too-Big Tee! :)

Day 213: D'oh! Dress
Day 211: A Sweater Made Sweeter

It seems like every time I volunteer at an event where I’m required to wear a Tshirt for said event, I always get stuck with a tee that’s a good 5 sizes larger than the one I requested.  :/  This includes today, when I showed up at The World Beer Festival.

Seriously?????

It looks like Erin snagged the last medium tee. They didn’t even have smalls.  :/

She’s a smug little thing, isn’t she?  🙂

Luckily, I anticipated my bad luck, and came armed!

Gigantic tee, you have met your match!

I cut each of the sleeves of my tee into strips, like so:

By this time, Erin was looking realllly concerned. 🙂

I stretched out all of the strips, and tied them in front of me.

Tie it nice & snug!

I turned the whole thing around, and was ready to volunteer in style!  😀

Ta Daaaaah! 🙂

I could have totally worn this as a dress, but stuck with my jeans to keep my legs warm in the colder areas of the Columbia Convention Center.

Muuuuch better than a tent-like tee! 🙂

And here’s what it looks like from the back!

Pretty neat, eh? 🙂

I had a blast helping out by lugging bags of ice, emptying buckets, and grabbing whatever the vendors needed.

Dan…the man behind the Brew Crew! 🙂

Of course one of the perks of providing free labor was that I got to sample plenty of tasty brew!  🙂

Booze and friends…a winning combination! 😀

I have to admit that this refashion worked perhaps a little too well.  When I went up to a few vendors and asked “Are you guys doing okay?  Do you need anything?”, a couple of them didn’t realize I was a volunteer, and looked at me like I was nuts!  They must have thought I was just a very concerned attendee!  😀

Cheers!
