Whoa! Check out that number, if you will (and I think you will)! Day THREE flippin’ HUNDRED!!!!!!!!!!!! You can tell by the superfluous exclamation points that I’m pretty excited about this. Only 65 days to go!!!!!!!! :)
I had yet another reason to celebrate! Today was the annual !!!! I look forward to this event every year, as it’s pretty much the event for Columbia winos.
I thought today’s piece was quite fitting for the occasion!
I really wanted to wear a dress for the event, and was still feeling inspired by Day 285’s skirt-to-dress refashion. This was going to be a bit different, but still in the same vein.
I got started by putting the skirt on my dress form with the waistband around the neck. then, I pinned down each side where I wanted my sleeves to be.
I stitched down each side…
Then, I sewed a second line about 1/2 ” next to the original line. These would be my sleeves. I cut between the two lines, and decided to shorten my new sleeves so they’d be about 3/4 length.
My new sleeves got new hems.
Now…I was allllmost done! I just had a few little nips/tucks to do here and there to make my new dress fit properly!
After my last tweaks were complete, I was ready to consume copious amounts of vino! :)
As we wandered about, I got tons of compliments on my fab new frock! :)
