So it was Valentine's Day and guess who didn't have a dress? Meee. The planning was not strong within me that day. What I DID have was this largeish, rayon-y, and exceptionally shoulder-padded-y dress....thing... that I had picked up at my local GoodWill for $1.
I didn't end up taking many any in progress shots with this one because, well, I was mildly crunched for time. Read: I started this 4 hours before we left for dinner. Again I say...THE PLANNING WAS LACKING. hahaha
Sooooo here are the afters! I was really jazzed at how it turned out!
A quick breakdown:
Chop off the sleeves
Chop off 3/4 of the skirt
Unpick the side seams and darts
Try on and take off dress like 4,506,203 times
Spend 30 minutes looking for your box of pins
Don't find pins
Take in the seams and darts
Adjust the height and width of arm holes
I randomly decided I liked the buttons down the back better...I love button backed things! I think it gives the back a nice little surprise. Or somethinseomthin.
OH. And those weren't my cute sassy shoes. Cute sassy shoes rubbed cute sassy blisters and I traded them for my flippy floppies. (Yay comfort!)
I loved wearing it! I will definitely wear it again...sometime in the future after the baby gets here, most likely. I am starting to enter the 'My clothes don't fit right around the ever expanding abdomen' phase, and it gave me a little bit of trouble with my normal sizing routine. BUT. I was super pleased and Mr S winked at me several times so that's perfect in my book
I hope you all had a lovely love-filled Valentine's Day!
