Day 292: Marigold Dress

Day 293: Polka Not Dress: How to (Easily) Take in a Thrift Store Dress Using a Dress Form
Day 291: Weird Science Dress

Wowza!  Today’s dress has a LOT going on, doesn’t it?  🙂

Day 292:  Marigold Dress 2
Quite busy indeed!

I actually really like the extremely busy pattern on this dress.  🙂  Unfortunately, It’s extremely old lady-ish and way too big!

Not to fear!  🙂

First, I cut off that bottom patterned section, and put it aside.

I have big plans for you!!!

I took the dress in on the sides by about 2″.

Day 292:  Marigold Dress 4
Whirrrrr!

The back of the dress was still super-blousy though.  :/  As I’m not going for the one humped camel look this spring, I took it in a bit from the back, too!

Day 292:  Marigold Dress 5
No more Camelback! 🙂

Next, I lopped off a bit more length.

Day 292:  Marigold Dress 6
Get outta here!

Almost done!  I grabbed that scrap from the original bottom of the dress, trimmed it down, and stitched it into a lovely little sash!  🙂

Day 292:  Marigold Dress 7
Sash in the making!

And now that cute dress is ready for a day at the office!  🙂

Day 292:  Marigold Dress 8
Properly frocked for a hard day's work! 🙂

Cheers!
