Day 312: Nothing Rhymes with Flannel Dress

Day 311: Identity Crisis Dress

There’s a lot to dislike about today’s piece, folks.

No Jillian, the grunge movement happened two decades ago. :/

I am not a fan of flannel shirts.  I realize that they’re comfy, warm, practical, and blah blah blah blah blah, but I don’t care.  There is no reason to wear them in public unless you’re camping…or Paul Bunyan.

I dunno…they seem to dig it!

This shirt had a few problems other than aesthetics to worry about, too!

RAWR!!!
Holes Galore!
Falling apart at the seams!

What’s a girl to do?!?!

First, I removed those problematic sleeves.  It’s pretty flippin’ hot here in SC, so the extra arm warmage wasn’t necessary!

Snnnip!
Hey, Don’t fret! I have plans for you yet! :)

Then, I pinned up that wounded side seam.

Pinned!

A quick stitch session followed!

My fingers look HUGE!!!!

For my final trick, I cut the sleeves into strips and stitched them into a sash!

Hi. I’m Jillian. I’m a sashoholic! :)

Now that flannel shirt is a much cuter (though still flannel) dress!  :)

Black + Brown = One of my favorite color combinations :)
I probably drink more of this than you do.

Cheers!
