Day 301: Tangerine Dream Dress

Day 302: Party Animal Dress
Day 300: Culture Vulture Top

I haven’t been having the best luck finding truly bad pieces at thrift stores as of late.  Could it be that there are now other budding refashionistas out there competing for my supply?  🙂  Anywho…I dug through the men’s section for today’s piece.

I look so walk of shame-y! :/

You’re looking at a men’s 2x dress shirt in a fun, almost iridescent tangerine hue!  I love the contrasting collar, and the happy sherbet-y color.  And that’s where my praise for this one ends.  Time to get to work!

For starters, I went ahead and shortened the sleeves.  I knew I wouldn’t be able to keep the white cuffs, as they were dingy and spotted.  :/

Whirrrr!

I cut off the extra fabric, but I wasn’t done yet!  I gave my sleeves new hems…

Sleeve hemmery!

and stitched down part of the front of my new dress.

I’m almost done!  I took the scraps that I cut off from the side and sewed them into a matchy-matchy sash!
