Day 72: Refashioning a Little Black Mess to a Little Black Dress

Day 73: My Football Skirt
Day 71: A Sure-Bet Dress

Yay!  A new old lady dress!  As you know by now, every time I see one of these, I get giddy!  🙂

So…this isn’t very attractive for a fun Friday night.  🙂  Let’s get to work, shall we?

First I chopped off the top of the dress.

Chop!

Then I folded the raw edge over and pinned it.

I ran the pinned edge through my machine. 

Now I have a casing for some elastic to make the top nice and snug.  🙂

Elastic…it’s fantastic!

Now I have a super-cute little black dress…perfect for an evening hanging out with friends!

First, we swung by The Cigar Box…

Then we spent some quality porch time.  🙂

  1. Loved what you did with the black dress. I’ve been following your blog for a while now and love your creativity. If I could, I would use some of your ideas to add to my wardrobe, however, strapless is not for me. Your creativity intrgues me so I will continue to follow you journey. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Beautiful again! I saw orbs in your second to last pic. The “clinks” pic. It looks like your grandma and other spirits were enjoying the togetherness of the evening too. 🙂
