Day 291: Weird Science Dress

Day 292: Marigold Dress
Day 290: Mad About My Me-Made Makeup Bag

This dress totally looks like a hospital gown.  :/

Day 291:  Weird Science Dress 2
See what I mean?

It actually isn’t though.  It’s a lovingly (?) handmade smock thing with a really crazy print!

As I don’t relish the idea of looking like an escapee from a mental health ward, there was a bit of work to do here!

First, I put the dress inside-out on my dress form, and began pinning the sides to make it fit.  🙂

Pinning along...

The arm holes were both ripped, but this wasn’t a big dealio, as I took them in a bit too!

Day 291:  Weird Science Dress 4
Rippage!

I ran each side under the needle…

Day 291:  Weird Science Dress 5
Whirrrrr!

…then chopped off some of that awkward length!

buh bye! 🙂

Alrighty!  I’m sooo close to being done!  I gave the bottom a new hem, like ya do.

Day 291:  Weird Science Dress 7
Almost done!!!

I pressed the whole thing, and was ready to run out the door just in time to make it to a viewing of the Japanese film, Battle Royale.

Enjoying a little pre-movie brewski. 🙂

This movie is pretty flipping awesome.  If you’re into The Hunger Games, you should really check this out.

We certainly enjoyed it!  🙂
