Day 363: All the Angles Dress

Day 364: All Tied Up Top
Day 362: Mairi Shrug

When I found today’s dress at one of my fave $1 thrift stores,  I was stoked!  Check out the amazeballs print!  🙂

The shoulder pads are slightly less than amazeballs,

You’re looking at a totally 80’s shoulderpadded number that desperately needs a facelift!  Time for a Nip/Tuck!

First, I made a big chop!

Nip!

Then, I took in the whole thing about 2″ on each side.

Pin, then Sew! 🙂

After cutting off the excess material, I folded the top raw edge over twice and stitched it down, leaving about a 1″ gap.  This is where I’m going to insert some elastic.

Tuck!

After digging through my stash, I realized I was all out of elastic!  Ugh!  And I was soooo not in the mood to make a last-minute craft store run!  :/

Then I remembered this leftover scrap from Day 315!

You shall be sacrificed!

I cut off the elastic waistband…

Why didn’t I think of this before????

I threaded the elastic through the dress’ new casing…

Thread it!

Then, I stitched the two ends together, as well as the 1″ gap I left to insert the elastic through.

Closing up shop!

Now that dress is ready for a fun night of Karaoke with friends!   🙂

I would love to say that my dress was the most stylish thing I saw tonight, but this simply wouldn’t be true.
