I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season. 🙂 Whether you’re spending it with your family, your chosen family, or your fur family, I really hope you’re surrounded by the ones you love!
I spent today with Fella and Gypsy, baking cookies, and being lazy (so nice!).
I wanted something comfy, but still pretty for our very casual Christmas Eve!
I dug out this $1 ’80s dress from my to-be-refashioned bin. 🙂
Alrighty! This dress is too big for me, and looks pretty dated, huh?
Luckily, all I needed to do was make a few amputations!
I first ripped out those shoulder pads.
The sleeves and some of the skirt length followed.
Since I knew I’d be cinching the waist of this dress in with a sash at the end (thus raising the hem further), I was verrrrry conservative about that bottom chop.
Remember, you can always chop off more later, but it’s much harder (if not impossible) to add that fabric back on!
I took that bottom piece and turned it into an obi-style belt to give this dress a waist.
I left the sash part super-long…just to keep things interesting. 🙂
As you can probably surmise by my lack of a jacket, it’s still ridiculously warm here. I’m definitely not complaining…I loooove warm weather, and hate being chilly!
