Wow! Check out this mumsy number! :/
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.
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!
I couldn’t just leave that raw edge fraying all over the place, so under the needle it went! 🙂
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.
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! 😉
