This is how I dance/ why I never dance in public. :/

Take this weird fake wrap-around number with all sorts of gorgeous technicolor foliage!

This frock really didn’t need much work to be wearable.  First, I had to deal with these guys, who were not only stitched in, but pinned in as well!

Someone did NOT want these pads going anywhere!

Then, I went after some of the length.  I decided to go for an uneven bottom hem…sort of a sarong-ish look.  My roomie’s cat seemed to approve of this idea.

As most of you know, I’m a theatre critic for Jasper Magazine.  Tonight, my assignment was to watch and review Theatre South Carolina‘s production of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest.

“I’ve now realized for the first time in my life the vital Importance of Being Earnest.”

Of course, I didn’t go alone.  🙂
