Day 213: D’oh! Dress

Day 214: Jilly Pulitzer Dress
Day 212: A'dress'ing a Too-Big Tee! 🙂

How did this happen?  Today I had a guest with me while I refashioned.  Sara from Dateline Carolina chatted and snapped pics while I worked.  It was fun talking with her about my process, but sadly I got distracted…and…completely forgot to take any before or during pics.  :/

Just pretend it looked like this, okay?

Today’s dress began as being too big and frumpy.  I liked the plaid print, and I loved that is was handmade.  🙂

I took in a bunch from the back, so I could hold on to this really neat side snap.  I just don’t see these very much anymore, and I’d hate to get rid of it.

I like it!

In taking it in from the back, the collar ended up with an obvious raw seam, so I made a small panel to cover it up.  No prob!

That raw edge is undercover! 🙂

I also took away some of that length, and turned it into a sash.  Sadly, you don’t get to see any of that.  🙁

Fortunately, Sara was nice enough to send me a few pics.  🙂  Here’s me in action!

I know...it doesn't look very action-packed.

I promise…I’m not sad!  🙂

Whirrrr!
Day 213:  D'oh!  Dress 7
I promise...it's an improvement!

Later that night, I couldn’t believe that I forgot to take the flippin’ pictures!  I consoled myself with copious amounts of Indian food.  🙂

Sorry, Guys! 🙁

I promise…I won’t let this happen again!

At least you have a nifty article to look forward to reading!   😀  I’ll be sure to share it with you as soon as it’s published!

Cheers?
