When I saw today’s dress, I knew it would be just the thing for a Mardi Gras Celebration! :)
I love the gold hue, and the luxurious silk fabric, but I wanted something cute and fun to catch a parade with friends…and this wasn’t it!
I decided to completely lose the top part of the dress.
I left just enough of the fabric from the top part to fold over and pin. Then I stitched it down.
Now I needed straps for my new dress. I whipped up two fabric tubes from the leftover sleeve fabric…
and pinned them to the front and back of my new dress!
I stitched them down, and was all done (after a quick press!)
I slipped on some purple tights and green accessories, and was ready to meet up with my pals for pre-parade cocktails and pizza!
We headed off to watch the parade…but never quite found it! :/ We ended up traipsing all over the Rosewood neighborhood, laughing at our lack of parade tracking skills. :)
Happy Mardi Gras, everybody! :)
