A Totally Tubular Dress

A ReFashionista Transformed?
Spa Day Dress

Ah!  Whatever was I to wear for just another typical weeknight of music with friends?

Why this, of course:

Does this look familiar?

It’s hot here, folks!  There’s no way I can wear this sweater dress as-is…even if I wanted to!

Let the choppage begin!

Chop without mercy!
Chop without mercy!

I look forward to working with that top part this fall, but for now, I’m going to concentrate on the bottom!

I put that bottom part on my dress form, like ya do, and measured how much I would need to take this dress in on one side.

Measure for Measure!
Measure for Measure!

 

PIn, then sew!
PIn, then sew!

Once my new dress was all taken in, I still needed to deal with that raw edge on the top!  And deal with it I did!

PIn!
Pin!
Whirrrrr!
Whirrrrr!

I left a small section unsewn so I could work some elastic through my new casing.  To do this, I used a safety pin!  All you have to do is thread it through!

Just a lil ol' pin!
Just a lil ol’ pin!

After a bit of accessorizing, I was all set!

Like the new 'do?  :)

My new dress really enjoyed some tasty noms by Joe Turkaly!

His Mac 'n Cheese is epic!  :)

The music was pretty amazeballs too!

What Cheer? Brigade!

Yip Deceiver!

Which one wins?  Dan's shirt or my hair?
