Hiya! Wow! No posts in over a week! What the heck?!?
Ugh. I’ve been crazy busy lately with taking care of any loose ends at my old job so I can go to my new one, as well as a bit under the weather with some awful lung gunk that’s been circulating around Columbia, SC.
But I’m back! And I want to show you my newest $1 dress!
I love that dark blue and those bracelet-length sleeves! I was also intrigued when I discovered I’m a size 12!
With temps dropping below freezing, I just couldn’t bring myself to keep this as a dress. Plus, I have plenty of blue dresses already! Do you know what I don’t have nearly enough of? Cozy warm sweaters!
A big chop had to happen!
Don’t worry! I have plans for that bottom scrap!
I got to hemming the bottom of my new sweater. I used a zigzag stitch and stitched riiiiight on the edge of my new hem to keep it from fraying.
Yay! My sweater was done…but it wasn’t terribly exciting. :/ So, I reached for my spool ‘o ribbon and cut off two different lengths.
Next, I stitched each raw edge of each piece of ribbon down.
I pinned the ribbon bits onto my sweater…
…then I stitched them both down!
I pressed my ribbon accents down, and my new sweater was ready to head off to hang out with my friend, Michael Krajewski!
I really like this one! I think my new sweater is sort of a more modern take on a 1960’s style!
After hanging out for a bit at Michael’s studio, we hopped on over to Motor Supply for some yummy seasonal cocktails! 🙂
The weather outside was frightful, but we stayed happy and cozy with our warming libations!
Michael and I have a pretty exciting collaboration coming up that I can’t wait to share with you (mystery is exciting!)
