Wannabe Wednesday: Michelle Mason(ish) Edition

Raven's Reader ReFash!
Wannabe Wednesday: Johnny Was Edition

I hate being cold.

I hate being cold more than anything else in the world.

It’s been very cold here in South Carolina.  :/

When I moved to the south I expected year-round warmth and sunshine (research has never been my thing), creamy grits to be served with every meal, and men with impeccable manners.

I feel ripped off on two of these counts.

At least I have you. :)

My quest for warmth during this odd cold snap has led to me a life spent in wool socks and bulky sweaters.

But today I had to branch out!

I was inspired by this dress by Michelle Mason:

She looks as sad as I feel in Winter!

Doesn’t that look cozy?  Unfortunately, the closest thing I had on my refashion rack was this:

The cold makes me sleeepy!

This is a super-easy no-sew one, folks!  All I needed to do was make a big chop!

Just a big diagonal chop!

That’s really it.  🙂

Simple, eh?

I’m a bit too short to rock this look without a little waist definition, so I made a quick sash out of the bottom hem.

Pardon the terrible lighting. :/

My new dress had a great time checking out Whipped Cream & Other Delights:  remake/remodel!
