Wowza…Summer is officially in full effect here in the south!  With temps in the mid-90’s and crazy humidity, today’s dress wasn’t going to work as-is!

I can’t stand those stifling sleeves! 🙁

This dress really isn’t that bad…but those sleeves must go!

I grabbed my seam ripper and got to work!

Picky Picky!

Once the sleeves were out of the picture, I sewed down my new arm holes.

…well Almost an Evening, which is the name of the show I was asked to review for Jasper Magazine.  🙂

You can read my review of this darkly entertaining production right here!  🙂

Such a fun night!  🙂

  1. Wow! You’re a brilliant writer! I wasn’t sure what to expect from the review based on your style here (which is perfectly casual and light), but it was excellent (professional and engaging). 🙂

  2. I just started following your blog and I love it! You make it okay to play with clothing and not to simply accept what is made as it is. This has given me confidence to change my own clothes and I did my first refashion last week thanks to you. Thank you for inspiring me!
