A Too Darn Hot No-Sew Refashion

Elefun Dress Vol. 2!
Sucker for Seersucker Vol. 2



It’s been mind-numbingly, skull-thumpingly hot here in SC lately.  Forgive me for being lazy, but when I pulled this dress off my refash rack, I just wasn’t in the mood to sew.  Unfortunately, this dress wasn’t going to work on a 100+ degree day as-is.  :/



Not to worry!  I had a plan!  First, I snipped out those shoulder pads.


Pads & MORE pads!


Check it out!  There were actually back-up pads for the already huge pads!  Pads all around!

My shoulders weren’t gonna need any protection today though…other than sunscreen that is!

I turned the dress around so the zip-up back was in the front, and pulled my arms through the neck, tucking the top of the new front in.


Got it?


Then, I tied the sleeves under my boobal area, like so:


Almost done!


That’s it!


Not bad for a 3-minute refash!


I managed to keep cool while sipping mimosas with friends at a VERY fun Drag Brunch @ !



Hooray for bottomless mimosas!


The ladies were fabulous!

It’s Dorae Saunders!


She does a mean Tina!


Hi Bella Nichole Jade!


Philip’s just chillin’ with Buff Faye! :)


All these awesome costumes leave me inspired to perhaps start refashioning for a completely different kind of demographic ;)…What do you think?  ReDragionista?

It’s not like appears to be in need of style help though…


Or maybe the heat has just gone to my head!
