Day 321: Here Comes the Rain Dress
Day 319: Rose Garden Dress

Beige is one of my least favorite colors.  :/  Sadly today’s dress is…you guessed it!

Blah Blah Beige! Yick!

Before I even started with the icktastic shape of this frock, I reached for a box of something fun!

Keepin’ it real with teal! :)

Into the washing machine it went!

So pretty!

I left the dress in its dye bath for about 30 minutes, then gave it a thorough rinse and dry.

Next, I chopped off that bottom hem, and put it aside.

Snnnnip!

I tossed it on my dress form for a bit of lipo!  I had to be careful, as this dress has no zipper or anything.  If I pinned it too tightly, I wouldn’t be able to get it off the dress form or my body!

Take it in!

Each side went through my machine!

Whirrrr!

I cut of the excess material with my pinking shears, then shortened my dress a bit.

Chop!
Pinned!
Hot. Hemming. Action.

I pressed everything, and now that drab blob of beige is now a lovely sea foamy frock!  :)

Barely recognizable! :)
Quite happy to be out of the beige! :)

Cheers!
