Today’s piece was so awful that I couldn’t just stop at one “before” pic! 🙂
Okay…enough clowning around (wow that pun was awful, even for me!)! 🙂
I wasn’t feeling that weird yellow and white giraffe print, so I dropped it into a bath of black and teal dye. 🙂
After the bath was done, I unpicked the crotch of the jumpsuit and cut off the legs.
Then, I got to resizing!
I pinned the sides of my future dress on my dress form to make it more fitted.
I also pinned the front and the back of my future dress where I unpicked the legs.
I sewed up all my pinned areas, and chopped off the extra fabric.
My dress was looking realllllly cute already!
I gave it a new hem by folding the bottom edge under twice, pinning it, and then running it through my sewing machine.
…but still wasn’t entirely pleased.
I grabbed the legs I removed earlier, and turned them into a wide sash. 🙂
Now my new dress was definitely ready for my second and last day in NYC!
Before flying back to SC, I stopped off for a bit of jitter-fighting vino! 🙂
I hadn’t been to New York in a few years, so this was a really nifty little visit that reminded me of why I really should try to visit more often. 🙂
With a little luck, maybe I can.
