Every Fall, some friends and I make a trip to a nearby apple orchard. It’s a tradition that we look forward to every year with great anticipation.
It simply isn’t Fall yet until we make our annual trek! This year, we decided to visit Windy Hill Orchard & Cidery in York, SC. 🙂
I needed something autumnal for our outing. I’d be hard-pressed (get it? it’s a cider joke!) to find something in a more appropriate color scheme than this.
So what if this dress is too big for me and that dropped waist is sort of awkward? Who needs an awkward dress when they can have a beautiful tiered skirt? 🙂
First, I pinned along where the sleeves are.
They won’t be necessary anymore!
Then, I stitched down my pinned lines.
All I needed to do next was snip off those sleeves, and I was ready to go!
Since the back of this dress zips up, I just used the original neck hole as the waist for my new skirt! Do you recognize this top from my One Dress, Three Ways challenge? 🙂
Windy Hill has lots of tasty ciders to sample!
But that wasn’t all they had…
A few people have asked how tall (or rather, how short) I am. Here is proof that I’m of average height for a woman! 🙂
After we were done at the cidery, we headed out to Charlotte to explore a few breweries!
What a great way to welcome the new season! 🙂
