The print on today’s dress made a travel lover like myself (just ignore the fact that I never seem to go anywhere new, okay?) all sorts of happy! 🙂
The big prob with this dress is how unflattering the fit is. The length is a bit awkward as well.
I turned my new dress inside-out and got to pinning!
I ran each side through my machine.
I cut off the excess material, and then got to work on that length. I cut off a couple of inches, and then hemmed it. 🙂
Now that ill-fitting frock is perfectly fitted and fun!
I threw on a sweater to keep from getting to chilly. 🙂
I wore my fun new dress to Hunter-Gatherer for happy hour with some colleagues to celebrate the Statewide Arts Conference one day in advance! 🙂

Um, beyond adorable!
How do you tailor the garments to fit you so well? Do you use a dress form? Do you ever gain or lose weight?
That dress looks great once you worked your magic!
Just a few adjustments and this dress turns out fantastic. I am wondering, how long does it take to do a refashion like that?
Very chic – it´s amazing what a difference a few small adjustments can make!
The print is so cute. And it looks so much better after you fixed it.
Perfectly cute!!!! I love it!!!! 🙂
