This is a sad time of year for me, friends.  Fall is coming.  My days of frolicking blissfully in strapless dresses and sandals are coming to a close.  Layers.  :/  Coats.  :/  Scarves.  :/  Being cold all the time.  :/ Blerg.  :/

Today’s dress was just a little too big and a little too summery for the changing season.

 

Feeling blue about the changing seasons...

The taking-in part wasn’t a big deal.

I also raised the hem just bit.

 

CHOP!

Whirrrrrr!

Well…that’s not very exciting, now is it?

OH…BUT WAIT!  THERE’S MORE!

I grabbed a bit of dye…

 

I am literally grabbing the dye, see?

Then, I filled one side of the sink with hot water and green dye.

 

Hawt.
Hawt.

 

Then, I stirred it up!

 

Like ya do...

I added a bit of brown dye and hot water to a pitcher, and submerged the bottom of the dress in the sink and one shoulder of the dress in the pitcher.  I also splattered dye on the middle part.

 

This looks like it could be interesting.

I left my new dress in its twin baths while I met friends for brunch.  :)  When I got back, I rinsed it thoroughly in my washing machine.

Check it out now!  I think the new color scheme is a bit more fall than that sky blue.  :)

 

Awkward Posing!

Where's my arm?

Ah!  THERE it is!  Whew!

Seriously.  What am I trying to do here?
