Day 247: Busy Day Dress
Day 245: Mandarin Blue Dress

When I’m on the hunt for a potential refashion, the first thing to draw me in is a unique and pretty print!

It takes some imagination...true

Now all I have to do is extract everything bad from this dress, so the awesomeness hidden within can come out and play!  :)

I hate the sleeves ( it’s too hot here for sleeves anyways!).  I hate the length.  I hate that stifling turtleneck.  Time to get chopping!

First the Sleeves!
Then the length!

I folded the shoulders of the dress under once and stitched them down to make them narrower for my scrawny frame.

Just a single line along the seam!

The turtleneck issue was fixed by wearing the dress backwards, so the back zip is now in the front, giving me some breathing room!  I used the bottom scrap from the dress as a sash, and was ready to go!

Time to head out!

I met up with Erin to check out the Greater Columbia Society for the Preservation of Soul at Hunter-Gatherer!

Preserving the Soul. Preserving the Funk! :)

While trying to do that awkward arm-outstretched photography thing, a rather handsome silver fox with a thick European accent (Hey…I’m single and I can say such things) said he would be delighted to take our picture for us.  :)

Thanks Handsome Stranger Guy!
