this is my first project and i kinda just winged it!  so i got this dress at the good ol' salvation army and the waist fit me perfectly, so i saw potential.  first thing i did was to get rid of those hideous shoulder pads!

it was zipped up the back all the way to the neck.

i cut the front and back in deep v's and removed the sleeves





 it didn't fit quite right in the front, it was too long in the upper body for me (something to do with the shoulder pads) and it kept falling off my shoulders. so i added this little back thinger to pull it together at the back so it wouldn't fall off me.   had a bit of trouble with the back- i think the zipper shows too much, and i need to add a hook and eye closure.  this is my first experience with zippers. they're hard!



anyways, i quite like it (yay)!

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.
