I really love living in the south. :) The gorgeous weather makes up for how backwards we tend to be in areas such as politics. ;) When I found today’s dress, I knew its lightweight linen fabric would be just the thing for yet another lovely spring day!
Alright. This dress is obviously too big, and the print is really dated. :/ I actually like the fun fronds that adorn it, but it screams early 90’s! :/ Undaunted, I reached for a box of dye!
I ran into a slight problem when dying this one. The washing machine in my new digs doesn’t get hot water for some reason. :/ This shall be rectified, but the color of the dress was less saturated than what I was really going for. Still, this was an improvement over the original hue, so I let it slide. :)
I put my newly purplified dress on my dress form and began taking it in!
Then, I ran each pinned side under the needle!
I pressed my wrinkle-happy new frock and rushed out the door to catch the 2nd performance of Plan 9, followed by many drinks with friends! :)
I like this dress a lot. I feel like it has more of a 1940’s feel now. :)
