For tonight, I picked out a dress that looked like something my 3rd Grade teacher would have worn (Ms. C., you were not known for your sweet sense of style).
I began with removing those frikkin’ shoulder pads. I haven’t had to deal with any of those in a while, but they still give me the heebie jeebies!
Next I chopped the dress into two easy pieces.
Don’t worry about the skirt, I’m not about to toss it out! It’s going back into my stash for a future refashion. :)
I took my newly-chopped top, and hemmed its raw edge.
If you look at the before pic, you can see how the original top crosses over itself in the front. I decided to just leave it open, as I really liked how the soft fabric draped in a cape-like manner. :) What do you think?
After I was done posing in my front yard (much to the consternation of drivers-by), I headed of for ! :)
I somehow ended up with these sweet accessories as well (Courtesy of Crazy Mike):
