A few weeks ago, Dan and I spied a sweet deal for roundtrip airfare to Austin, TX. Ever the adventurous sort, we booked our flights and eagerly planned all the things we wanted to see and do!
But, I needed something comfy for the flight! I went with this lumpily shoulder-padded dress with a wonky bottom ruffle.
I like that yellow piping, and the lightweight fabric…but those pads are awful, I really prefer to fly in pants, and that ruffle hits me at a weird place!
To remedy this, I first removed those pads that were sewn AND pinned on!
Next, I trimmed off that ruffle!
The raw edge of the ruffle was safely hidden under an overlapping hem, so the bottom of my new top looked nice & finished with zero effort!
Our flight left at 5AM, so we decided to just stay up all night, and have a suuuuper early breakfast at Amelie’s in Charlotte, a wonderful 24-hour bakery/coffee shop, before heading to the airport.
Staying awake that long was more challenging than we had imagined!
Please forgive me for only having a selfie for my “after” pic. It was really quite early. 😉
Thankfully, Dan snapped a few pics for me while we drank our tasty coffee and nommed on yummy pastries! 🙂
Dan and I made our flight just fine, and did our sleeping on the plane.
Stay tuned tomorrow to see some of our fun Austin adventures! 🙂
