Day 314: Bibliophile Jacket: A Dress to Jacket Refashion

Day 315: Of Greater Fortuny Top
Day 313: Spilf Dress

Lately, I’ve really gotten back into reading.  I used to read ALL THE TIME, but had fallen out of the habit.

This challenge is…well…challenging. So, even though I’m insanely busy, making the time to relax is necessary for my sanity.

Given my re-found bibliophile ways, it’s no wonder I love this dress!

What’s to love?

I know…it looks like a big mess, but look a bit closer…

Books!

How whimsical and cute is this bookish print?!?!  I loves! 🙂

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…

Snip!

I also snipped off those belt loops.

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

I wore my new jacket to check out Christine Cannon’s show at McMaster Gallery.  You can see more of her work online right here.  🙂
