Day 337:  Art Collector Dress 2
Oooooh! Sweet collar….not! 😛

As you can see, I’m not entirely thrilled about this dress, folks.  It’s made of a lovely lightweight linen (perfect for a hot SC day), and that coral hue is just delightful.  But I can’t get over that flippin’ collar!  :/

An amputation is in order, friends.

It’s a mercy killing, I swear! 🙂

Okay!  That ugly collar is gone, freeing up what is actually a very pretty V-neck.  🙂  But something had to be done about that length!

Chop!

I couldn’t just leave that raw edge fraying all over the place, so under the needle it went!  🙂

Day 337:  Art Collector Dress 5
A brand new day & a brand new hem!

I’m almost done!  🙂  This dress, though shortened and de-collared was still waaaay to big for me.  Not to worry!  I wrapped those weirdo side sash thingies around me twice and tied them in the front.  Problem solved!  I rolled the sleeves up twice, and was good to go!

I headed off to the Tapp’s Art Center for their Pretty Girls Presents Concept: Consumerism Art Show.

Gotta have art! 🙂

See that yellowy/orangey piece behind me?  I actually ended up buying it!  🙂  Not buying any new clothes this year has really freed up my art budget!  😉
