On with the crafting!
So, on a fateful New Year's Eve in Brooklyn, I happened to be drinking mulled wine at a party full of out-of-control hipsters. Of course, I spilled said wine on my FAVORITE DRESS. Heartbroken, I tried endlessly to get the stains out, but alas, my dress was forever stamped with the marks of par-tay-ing. Soooo, I decided that instead of trying to cover the stains, I should highlight them and make them beauteous. Here's what I came up with: http://img9.photobucket.com/albums/v24/CoraBean/jessandcorapartay_016.jpg

I used a zigzag stitch to secure the patches, which were leftovers from another dress I had cut and hemmed. The floss is six-strand and doesn't quite match the patches, but I like it just the same anyways.
P.S. My pictures are washed out like whoa. Forgive me.
