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!

I'm having such good luck with prints lately!

You’re looking a strange jacket-type thing I found for $1 at one of my fave thrift joints.

Not quite a dress...Not quite a jacket.

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

Pin it down!
Pin it down!
Stitch it down!

Then, I got to work on closing up those sides.

Pin & Stitch these guys as well!

With all those gapes closed up, all I needed to do was shorten this frock.  🙂

Hem it!

Stitch ALL THE THINGS!!!!

After tossing on a thrifted obi belt, my dress was ready to hang out with some pretty terrific people!

Oh hai!
Oh hai!
Today I'm thankful for my sweet thrifted Tory Burch boots!  ;)
