This is a sad time of year for me, friends. Fall is coming. My days of frolicking blissfully in strapless dresses and sandals are coming to a close. Layers. :/ Coats. :/ Scarves. :/ Being cold all the time. :/ Blerg. :/
Today’s dress was just a little too big and a little too summery for the changing season.
The taking-in part wasn’t a big deal.
I also raised the hem just bit.
Well…that’s not very exciting, now is it?
OH…BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE!
I grabbed a bit of dye…
Then, I filled one side of the sink with hot water and green dye.
Then, I stirred it up!
I added a bit of brown dye and hot water to a pitcher, and submerged the bottom of the dress in the sink and one shoulder of the dress in the pitcher. I also splattered dye on the middle part.
I left my new dress in its twin baths while I met friends for brunch. 🙂 When I got back, I rinsed it thoroughly in my washing machine.
Check it out now! I think the new color scheme is a bit more fall than that sky blue. 🙂
