Day 147: Happy Thanksgiving! :)

Day 148: A Star is Born
Day 146: Fixing a Fail Skirt

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody! I hope all of you are having a great long weekend with your nearest and dearest.  Warm fuzzy wishes all around!  :)

I needed something nice to wear for a Turkey Day lunch at my Fella’s Mom’s house.

This'll do!

I like the fall colors in this dress, as well as the pretty floral pattern.  But that’s about it.  It’s too big and frumpy for moi!  :)

I got started by taking in the dress 1″ on each side.

Taking it in! :)

Then, I shortened it a good bit.  :)

Chop!
Hem!

Rather than just toss out the excess material from the bottom of the dress, I refashed a sweet sash!  :)

Stitchin' a Sash!

I pressed all my seams, and now I have a perfect Thanksgiving Day frock.  :)

Gobble Gobble!

By day, the weather was sunny and warm.  By night, it got downright chilly!

Brrrrrrr!

This was such a lovely day, spent with the Fella’s fun fam (yay for alliteration!).  I hope yours was just as nice.  :)

Here's one of the people I'm super-thankful for. :)

Cheers!
