It’s been mind-numbingly, skull-thumpingly hot here in SC lately.
Forgive me for being lazy, but when I pulled this dress off my Refashion rack, I just wasn’t in the mood to sew.
Unfortunately, this dress wasn’t going to work on a 100+ degree day as-is. :/
Not to worry! I had a plan to refashion this frumpy dress that didn’t involve any sewing at all!
First, I snipped out those shoulder pads.
Check it out! There were actually back-up pads for the already huge pads!
Pads all around!
My shoulders weren’t going to need any protection today though…other than sunscreen that is!
I turned the dress around so the zip-up back was in the front, and pulled my arms through the neck, tucking the top of the new front in.
Then, I tied the sleeves under my boobal area, like so:
That’s it my new new-sew dress was born!
I managed to keep cool while sipping mimosas with friends at a VERY fun Drag Brunch with friends!
The ladies were fabulous!
All these awesome costumes leave me inspired to perhaps start refashioning for a completely different kind of demographic ;)…What do you think? ReDragionista?
