Don’t let the title get you too excited for me, friends! While today’s post does involve travel, it’s not to Montreal, but the significantly closer Athens, GA!
A pal of mine suggested getting out of dodge to see Of Montreal (the band) at 40 Watt (the music venue) was in!
I just needed something to wear for a mini road trip/concert.
I opted for this sweet vintage dress that seemed full of easy upcycle potential.
Time is running out to rock more wintery refashions, so I’ve gotta start churning through my stash!
I love the harvest colors in this dress, and the thick polyester fabric (hello, warmth!).
I put the dress on my dress form inside-out and pinned each side to take it in.
Then, I stitched it up!
I still wasn’t happy with the length, so some of that went too.
I tried on my dress, and marked where I wanted it to end and then I made an even chop off the bottom.
And here’s my newly-refashioned concert-ready dress now! 🙂
Peeps at our pre-game bar didn’t get to see much of my fab frock, as I was keeping cozy under my teal jacket.
Then we got to 40 Watt!
I worried I might not be hip enough for the crowd, so I quickly added a couple of accessories! 😉
The headliner was awesome, but I really enjoyed the incredibly fun opener, Yip Deceiver!
This was my first time visiting Athens, and I can’t wait to come back! What a fun town!
