Today’s dress was reminiscent of antique wallpaper.
This crazy uber floral frock was actually handmade. This means that someone actually saw this fabric in a store and thought “Hey! That’s awesome! I want to make a big tacky dress out of that!” I don’t get it.
I didn’t pause to think about this for very long. There was much work to do!
First, I removed those fake pocket flaps from the front of the dress.
Next, I took the whole big mess in 2″ on each side
Then I cut off a good bit of the length, and hemmed it.
I took that bottom part that I chopped away, and sewed it into a nice lil matchy-matchy sash, and voila! I had a fun dress to reunite with my good buddy, Lisa who has been teaching in China for the last six months.
