Tonight, I just wasn’t in the mood for a dress. The chill (and my chill attitude) dictated jeans would be mandatory for the evening. I had no tops in my “before” pile, so I was going to have to transform this hideous thing:
First off, I snipped off those shoulder pads!
Then, I hacked off that skirt!
As you can see from the “before” pic, this thing was huuuuuuuge on me! I was going to need to do some major taking in. I decided to do it from the back. I turned it inside out, gathered 4inches from each side (a total of 8 INCHES…yikes!), and pinned it down the middle.
Next, I put it through my machine I just went ahead and left it threaded with the black thread from my last project, as A. I was in a hurry and B. No one would be seeing it anyways (as it’s on the inside).
Once my new top was all sewn up the back, I trimmed off that excess fabric, threw it on, and rolled up those sleeves.
I was all set to enjoy a night of improv comedy with with some fun and fabulous people! :)
