Day 365: Kitschy Dress

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

Today’s piece is a fun & kitschy handmade house dress.  🙂

Day 365: Kitschy Dress 2
The fun is there, I promise! 🙂

Okay…I’m not a fan of the brown & white print (too tablecloth-y!) and this is obviously too big for me.  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.  🙂

Frankly my dear, I DO give a damn!

Bath Time! 🙂

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

Pin!

Stitch!

Trim!

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

Leftovers!

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

Day 365: Kitschy Dress 9
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!  🙂

Pals!

Their support has meant the world to me.  🙂

Remember Ava? She’s almost walking on her own now! 🙂

Gotta have friends! 🙂

Oh and check this out…my dress didn’t travel alone either!  🙂

Day 365: Kitschy Dress 13
I heart vintage aprons! 🙂

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

So…technically this is a 366 day project.

Do you wonder what I have in store?

Cheers!
