I do declayuh! 🙂

Okay.  Check out that awful multi-layered ruffle action at the neckline!  :/  Seriously?  Seriously?  It’s not all bad though!  That print is lovely, and the crepe-like material is airy & lightweight!  There’s definite potential here, folks!  🙂

Yeah…but those ruffles had to go!

I can’t believe all this came from the neckline! Geez!  :/

While I had my scissors out, I made a few more snips as well!

Snip & Snip!
Day 346:  The Vapors Dress 6
Chop!

Then, I gave that bottom edge a new hem!

Pinnery!
Day 346:  The Vapors Dress 8
Stitchery!

And now that once-wretchedly ruffled reject (yay for alliteration!) is ready to go antiquing!  🙂

Day 346:  The Vapors Dress 9
A lovely way to spend a rainy day!  🙂

While wandering about, I encountered a few creepy things that I reallllly wanted to take home with me!  🙂

      I know. I get into ruts (fabulous ruts are still ruts). For the past three years before this project, I ONLY wore long skirts, because I was self-concious about showing my legs. I’ve finally gotten over that and now hate wearing anything long. But you’re right, variety is the spice of life! I need to do different things! 🙂

      As to the jumpsuit question, I’m on a personal crusade to turn them all into dresses. I hate ’em! 😛

    I think you should of made shorts with this pattern. Pair it with a simple white fitted t shirt. would look cute. that pattern is just awful as a dress in my opinion. what were the 80s thinking?
