Today’s piece was so awful that I couldn’t just stop at one “before” pic!  πŸ™‚

Send in the Clowns.

There should be clowns.

They’re already here!

Okay…enough clowning around (wow that pun was awful, even for me!)!Β  πŸ™‚Β 

I wasn’t feeling that weird yellow and white giraffe print, so I dropped it into a bath of black and teal dye. Β  πŸ™‚

Bath Time!

After the bath was done, I unpicked the crotch of the jumpsuit and cut off the legs.  Then, I got to resizing!

Pinned on each side!

I also pinned the front and the back of my future dress where I unpicked the legs.

Day 230:  Send in the Clowns Dress 7
Just pin a straight line!

I sewed up all my pinned areas, and chopped off the extra fabric.

Whirrrr!

My dress was looking realllllly cute already!  I gave it  a new hem…

Hem time!

…but still wasn’t entirely pleased.  I grabbed the legs I removed earlier, and turned them into a wide sash.  πŸ™‚

Now my new dress was definitely ready for my second and last day in NYC!

Leaving…on a jet plane…

Before flying back to SC, I stopped off for a bit of jitter-fighting vino!  πŸ™‚

Day 230:  Send in the Clowns Dress 14
No fear of flying here, folks! πŸ™‚
Day 230:  Send in the Clowns Dress 15
Time to call it a day!

I hadn’t been to New York in a few years, so this was a really nifty little visit that reminded me of why I really should try to visit more often.Β  πŸ™‚Β 

With a little luck, maybe I can.

Cheers!  πŸ™‚
