I've been away for a long time so I'll try to post what I've been up to!
Had an event to go to and had nothing to wear so I decided to sew something up, using this big red jersey dress from a thrift store


And turned it into this!

You went from frumpy to sexy really quickly! wowza!

I remember those huge shapeless t-dresses---were they for sleeping or what? ha ha

You did a wonderful job---your dress is much more flattering!

The new dress looks much better on you than the T-shirt dress.

It makes me wish I could change from frumpy to sexy as fast as this old dress! Wink

Another thing to add to my to-thrift list!  This is fantastic, and I simply have to make one for myself...someday, if I ever find one.

HOLY CRAP! That is amazing. I have such a hard time being inspired when I go to the thrift stores and such. I think I need to do better.  Smiley
