I'm writing this Tuesday night but scheduling to post on Wednesday since I just posted some ramblings a couple of hours ago.
After my last post, I got my rear end up to my sewing room and attacked the dress. I knew it wouldn't take long and I was right. An hour, tops, and a good chunk of that time was rethreading my machines, changing needles, and winding a bobbin, and keeping half an eye on The Biggest Loser (OMG how does anyone lose 37 lbs in one week?? Speaking of which, I've decided I want a personal trainer. lol).
Here's the dress before, with 3/4 sleeves and a plunging, work inappropriate neckline.
And after. The sleeves have been chopped, turned, pressed and coverstitched. The neckline was ripped out where it was orginally attached (it's sort of a faux crossover, so there's only very little of actual overlap) and resewn with less plunge. Not bad for a $19 dress from Walmart and a little time in the sewing room. Thread is free, right?
Here's how I'm wearing it on Wednesday (or how I *did* wear it, since my tenses are messed up by writing this the night before). Yep, the dress goes with the comfy shoes. Synchronicity.
And now Zillie is nekkid and I have to decide what's next. Poor Zillie.
