The World’s End Top

Basil Dress
The Blind Pepper

When I found this $1 jumper at the thrift shop, I thought it might be fine as-is.  But when I tried it on, I noticed something.

If I moved my hands, you'd notice it too. :/

Do you remember how I said this jumpsuit gave me a case of camel toe that rivaled the Prancercise Lady’s?  Well…we have a NEW winner!  :/  There’s no way in hades I’m going out in public while wearing this thing…not as-is anywho!

I grabbed my scissors and started cutting!  First, I snipped off those tiny ruffly things from the front of the jumper.

Snippity snip!
Snippity snip!

 

Then, I cut the seams from the crotchal region of the jumpsuit, like so:

Snnnnnip!
Snnnnnip!

 

Almost done!  🙂  I pinned the cut-up crotch part to make a straight line with what would end up being my new top.

 

See?
See?

 

I stitched each side down…

 

Whirrrrrrrr!
Whirrrrrrrr!

 

…then chopped off the excess material with my pinking shears.  since the original hem of the former shorts lined up perfectly, I didn’t have to stitch a new one.  🙂

I tossed on my new top, and headed off to a movie night with friends!

 

Did I mention it has pockets?!?

Our film du jour was this bit of Simon Peg/Nick Frost awesomeness!

You’re probably wondering why I’m holding the head of one of our former presidents on my hand.  For some delightful reason, our host had a few laying out for our enjoyment (and confusion).

 

The mind reels!

Of course, masks are always fun!

GAAAAAAAH!!!!!

Behold!

As some of you who know, I’m going off the sauce for a couple of weeks.  This was Day 1.

 

Don't worry! It's just (non-alcoholic) Ginger Beer! :)

I have good & healthy reasons for giving my beloved booze a break.  But as you can see, I’m still fully capable of being interesting & weird without it.  😉
