Day 133: The Mirror Has Two Dresses

Day 134: An Easy Tribal Halter
Day 132: Stenographer Jacket

Today’s piece was taken from the big bag ‘o stuff from Susan Lenz (remember her?).  This one made me giggle.


This is one EXTREME kaftan!  :)  Check out those mirrors all over the chest and hems!

Sadly, about six of the mirrors had fallen off from the top of the kaftan.

Missing persons!

I knew I would be shortening this bad boy, so I cut out some of the mirrors from the bottom hem, and relocated them to the top of the dress.  :)

Hot Glue Gun Action!

Okay, so now my mirrors are all in place!  Time to de-tackify this motha!

First, I snipped off those neck tie thingies.  They were a bit much!

No time for tassels!

 Next, I chopped off the length, getting rid of that extra mirror action on the bottom.


Next came a quick hem and a press.

...with a fun contrasting thread!

I wrapped the side ties of the dress around me twice to give my new dress a bit of a kimono-ish look.  Whaddyathink?

It's comfy too!
Woohoo! Free razors!

Allow me to explain the above pic.  :)  I was standing near the entrance of the bar, when in comes this guy with a huge bag of razors.  It turns out, he’s an extreme couponer who got them all for free.  Thanks to him being kind enough to share his spoils, my legs will be smooth all winter!  ;)
