When I’m on the hunt for a potential refashion, the first thing to draw me in is a unique and pretty print!
Now all I have to do is extract everything bad from this dress, so the awesomeness hidden within can come out and play! 🙂
I hate the sleeves (plus it’s too hot here for sleeves anyways!). I hate the length. I hate that stifling turtleneck. Time to get chopping!
I folded the shoulders of the dress under once and stitched them down to make them narrower for my scrawny frame.
The turtleneck issue was fixed by wearing the dress backwards, so the back zip is now in the front, giving me some breathing room! I used the bottom scrap from the dress as a sash, and was ready to go!
I met up with Erin to check out the Greater Columbia Society for the Preservation of Soul at Hunter-Gatherer!
While trying to do that awkward arm-outstretched photography thing, a rather handsome silver fox with a thick European accent (Hey…I’m single and I can say such things) said he would be delighted to take our picture for us. 🙂
