One Dress, Three Ways…and a Mysterious Celebration!

One Dress, Three Ways II…and Good News!
Happy 2015 from SlipsKnute!

When I found this dress for $1 at the thrift store, I just couldn’t decide what I wanted to do with it. There were so many possibilities!

 

Tabula Rasa!

 

That’s why it’s time for another round of…

 

One Dress, Three Ways!

 

 

My first refashion for this boring frock is a no-sew, and it’s super easy!

First, I took one of my arms out of its sleeve and pulled it through the neck hole, like so:

 

Whatever shall I do with you, sleeve?

 

Next, I grabbed a neat belt buckle cover thing I thrifted ages ago and slipped the sleeve through. If you don’t have one of these, don’t fret! Your frock will look just fine without it, but I was feeling a bit fancy. :)

 

Lovely, isn’t it?

 

View from the back!

 

I safety pinned the sleeve to the side seam of the dress, tucking the pin on the inside, then flopping the sleeve over itself to hide all evidence of pinnage…

 

…like this!

 

See?

 

My new dress is just the thing for celebratory dinner with my fella.  :)

 

Ooh la la!

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at , where a very happy toast was made!

 

Don’t we look pretty?

 

…and a celebratory peanut butter pie was consumed…

 

Nom!

 

A Woman Possessed

 

But, what are we celebrating?!?!  Why am I being so very mysterious????

Care to wager a guess?

I can’t wait to share my extremely exciting news with you guys…tomorrow.  ;)

I’ll also be sharing the 2nd installment of of this Three-Way refash, so stay tuned!  :)

Cheers!
