Merry Christmas, my lovely refashlings (what?)!
After spending much of my holiday time off being ridiculously family-oriented, I was thrilled to spend Christmas Night with my best buds!
I’ve been saving this cute little vested dress number just for the occasion!
I feel like that dude in Quantum Leap, and that I’ve woken up transformed into my terribly dressed 3rd Grade Teacher (I’m judging you, Ms. Coomer) who threw chalk at me once.
It was time to strive to put right what once went wrong, and I hoped that my next leap will be the leap (to my much more fashionable) home!
Unfortunately, I had no witty sidekick…:/
Fine, Al. Whatever. I’ll go it alone!
First, I got to ripping!
The velvet collar and that fake vest had to go! I didn’t want to just snip it off, as it would look all frayed and gross.
This left a lot of holes!
I just pinned everything back together (sans ugly collar and vest!).
Then I stitched it all back together.
I wasn’t happy with the fit of my dress, so I took it in a bit on each side.
Then, I took off some length!
After a quick press my new holiday dress was ready to impress (hot rhyming action!)!
Oh…and check out my fab elfin footwear! 🙂
We were all thrilled with our fab White Elephant gifts.
I really hope this is the beginning of a Christmas tradition! 🙂
