Day 365: Kitschy Dress

Day 366: The End? Dress
Day 364: All Tied Up Top

Today’s piece is a fun & kitschy handmade house dress. Β πŸ™‚

Day 365:  Kitschy Dress 2
The fun is there, I promise! πŸ™‚

Okay…I’m not a fan of the brown & white print (too tablecloth-y!) and this is obviously too big for me. Β Let’s see what we can do about all that, shall we?

First, I threw the dress into a dye bath with my good friend, Scarlet. Β πŸ™‚

Bath Time! πŸ™‚

After about 40 minutes in the dye and a rinse & dry, my new dress was ready to be taken in!

I decided some of that length had to go as well!

Leftovers!

Now my new dress is ready for a fun supper with friends!

Ta-Da!

I have to admit, there is no way I could have made it through this year without a lot of help from my friends! Β πŸ™‚

Pals!

Their support has meant the world to me. Β πŸ™‚

Gotta have friends! πŸ™‚

Oh and check this out…my dress didn’t travel alone either! Β πŸ™‚

Day 365:  Kitschy Dress 13
I heart vintage aprons! πŸ™‚

Of course…this isn’t the end of my year of refashioning. Β I was silly enough to start this challenge on a leap year, you see! Β πŸ˜‰

So…technically this is a 366 day project.

Do you wonder what I have in store?

Cheers!
