Books!

How whimsical and cute is this bookish print?!?!  I loves! ๐Ÿ™‚

Unfortunately, this dress was just waaaaay too busy for my taste.  Time to pare it down a bit!

These guys absolutely had to go!

Party Crashers!

I removed the top part of the dress from the bottom part, right along the serged seam so it wouldn’t fray…

I also snipped off those belt loops.

Hot. Snipping. Action.

I turned the top part of the dress around, using the zip-up back as the new front of my new jacket.  ๐Ÿ™‚
