Day 321: Here Comes the Rain Dress

Day 322: Refashioner's Block Top
Day 320: Beyond the Beige Dress

The thing I really like about the completely blah and shapeless polyester dresses I find for $1 at thrift stores…

Day 321: Here Comes the Rain Dress 2
So very blah!

…is what wonderful blank slates they are!  You can really do just about anything with them!  πŸ™‚

I decided to go for a quick, but dramatic no-sew refashion for this one!

First, I trimmed off that bottom hem to make my sash.

Snippage!

Then, I folded the dress in half and made a big asymmetrical cut!

Day 321: Here Comes the Rain Dress 4
Do you see where this is going? πŸ™‚

Those sleeves needed a bit of a shortening, too!

Day 321: Here Comes the Rain Dress 5
Short ‘n Sweet!

And that’s it!  Now that dress is totally transformed!

Day 321: Here Comes the Rain Dress 6
Lovin’ the High/Low Hem!!! πŸ™‚

I wore my dress to Finlay Park for a production of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged).  I was especially excited, as I was asked to review the show for Jasper Magazine and Onstage Columbia!  πŸ™‚

There I was…poised with pen in hand, ready to take notes!

Day 321: Here Comes the Rain Dress 7
Let’s DO this! πŸ™‚

Erin and I were really optimistic…

Day 321: Here Comes the Rain Dress 8
This play will be great! We just know it! πŸ™‚

…and then it started to rain.  Hard.  :/

Day 321: Here Comes the Rain Dress 9
Oh Noooooo!!!! :/

So…the show was called off.  Such a bummer!  Luckily, I’ll be able to catch it/review it on what will hopefully be a bright & sunny Saturday!  Fingers crossed! I’ll be sure to post the link to my review when it’s released. πŸ™‚

Cheers!
