Happy Day After Thanksgiving! 🙂 I’m hoping you’ve all recovered sufficiently from your tryptophan hangovers and you’re avoided the Black Friday masses!
After my original Thanksgiving plans were dashed, I was extremely thankful to be invited to a fun feast with friends! 🙂 I knew just what I wanted to wear!
You’re looking a strange jacket-type thing I found for $1 at one of my fave thrift joints.
The print is great, but I really don’t need a totally functionless garment. :/
I decided to do what I needed to do to turn this weird jackety thing into a dress!
First, I needed to stitch down that open gapey party under the buttons
Then, I got to work on closing up those sides.
With all those gapes closed up, all I needed to do was shorten this frock. 🙂
After tossing on a thrifted obi belt, my dress was ready to hang out with some pretty terrific people!
I spent the day in the company of some wonderful friends!
Cheers to a Happy Thanksgivivukkah! 🙂
