Ever since my delightful beach trip last week, I can’t get thoughts of the ocean out of my head! Perhaps that’s why I chose this $1 dress for today’s refashion.
I love the sea foamy hue, and check out these sweet buttons!!!
There were a lot of problems with this dress though. I hated all those stupid pearls on the neckline and pockets, there are some serious shoulder pad issues going on, and one of those sweet buttons is MIA! :/
My first order of business was to remove a few annoyances!
I was in a trouser mood, so the next thing I did was chop off a whole bunch of length! This also meant that I wouldn’t have to deal with the missing button issue anymore. :)
I turned my soon-to-be jacket inside-out and got to pinning!
Then, I sewed along my pinned lines. After adding a hem to the bottom raw edge…
…I was all done! Now my jacket was ready to come with me to the opening party for the at ! :)
While at 701, my buddy Erin and I headed upstairs to see what was in the gallery…
Our minds were sufficiently blown!
This exhibit is flippin‘ AWESOME, and if you’re in the Columbia area, you really need to check it out! The gallery has been made to look like a spaceship with tons of robots hiding everywhere!!! :)
