Day 198: Plucky in Paisley Dress

Day 199: Bamboo Dress
Day 197: Complete Cop-Out Dress

Hello old church lady dress!  :)

Quite Stifling!

Whew!  That high neckline is killin’ me, and check out how the lining sticks out from under the skirt…not classy!

I immediately go to work and cut out the shoulder pads and the skirt lining.  It had all sorts of holes in it, so it was time for it to go!

Cut. It. Out.

Next, I used my seam ripper to get rid of that terrible turtleneck.

And there it goes!
All open and gapey! :(

Removing the neck left the neckline all open and raw edgey, so I pinned it all back together and stitched it all back up!  :)


Now that the neckline was all taken care of, I got to work on the skirt.

Farewell, O awkward length!

That bottom hem got a nice pin & sew as well!


Now that frumptastic dress is looking much more winter chic!


In the middle of this refashion, I managed to knock SlipsKnute camera #4 off the counter (doh!), which brings us to…SlipsKnute camera #5!   With all these cheap-o cameras I keep dropping, I could have probably bought (and destroyed) a nice DSLR by now!  :)

I want to thank everybody for the really nice comments and emails from yesterday’s post.  Don’t worry!  I’m not quitting, and I really do love making refashions and sharing them with you guys.  :)  I also want this blog to be genuine, which is why I share my struggles and snags with you.   I really appreciate your support.  You guys rock!  :)


Cheers!  :)
