Day 255: Kicked Back Dress

Day 256: Teal Day Dress
Day 254: Happy Birthday to Me!!! 🙂

When I was given this dress from Revente’s Last Call, I immediately noticed there was something missing!

Day 255:  Kicked Back Dress 2
Eeep!

Somehow the drawstring for the top of this maxi dress had lost its way!  Yikes! :/

I really didn’t like the color of this dress, the black bottom, or the length (I’m kind of over maxi dresses).  :/  Luckily, I knew just what this dress needed!

First, I made a couple of cuts!

Chop and Chop!

I took the top two pieces and put them in a dye bath with some leftover fuchsia dye!

Day 255:  Kicked Back Dress 4
Time for a color upgrade!

After the two pieces were dyed & dried, I worked that bottom scrap through the drawstring casing.  This was made extremely easy, thanks to a new toy I picked up at the fabric store!  This little guy makes pulling fabric through casings a breeze!

The best little doohicky ever! 🙂

Now that dress is fierce in fuchsia with a fun new length!  🙂

Day 255:  Kicked Back Dress 6
Fierce!

It was a tad chilly out, so I tossed on a simple cardi to keep my arms and shoulders nice and warm!

Ah! Toasty! 🙂

I wore my new dress to Mellow Mushroom for a tasty brewski and early dinner with Marty. 🙂

Day 255:  Kicked Back Dress 8
Mmmmm! Blue Moon! 🙂

Mmmmmm! Salad! 🙂

Cheers!
