Oh hai! Welcome to my new place!

Of course this frock wasn’t without its issues.  

It had a few weird stains on it that didn’t come out in the wash (more on that later), It’s obviously too big for me, and as temps have gotten nice & warm, I wasn’t feeling the sleeveage.  

But isn’t that print fabulous?  And I really liked the neckline too!

To get started, I grabbed my seam ripper and started de-sleeving.

Byeeee!

Next, I closed up those raw edges…

And whirrrrrr!

Next, a bit of fitting was in order!  I was happy to see that those stubborn stains would no longer be an issue, as I’d be able to just sew them off.  🙂

And that’s it!  My first refashion in over a month is now complete!

Yay!

I styled my new frock with an awesome bag I thrifted for $2.00, one of my many giant pairs of shades, a necklace that used to be my grandmother’s, and my comfy Sperrys.  🙂
