I just go with my gut when picking through items at the thrift store.
I transformed a different FISHY PRINT DRESS a while back, and didn't question my inner voice.
Samezies with this one.
It was a bit drapey, and not in a good way.
|One fish, two fish|
First thing I had to do was take off some of the heaviness at the bottom.
Then I needed to shape the waist. I cut 2 strips of elastic and sewed one in the front, and one in the back. The whole time I was sewing I was pulling the elastic taught so the fabric will gather when it's done.
Not so pretty pinning....
...But the finished product was great!
I also sewed in some bust darts to give it more shape.
I liked the color and the print, so I decided to leave that part alone.
Kenny and I took the munchkin to day care/camp, and I finished up sewing this dress for our grown-ups only lunch date.
The hubs LOVES BBQ, and we decided to try this
food truck near by.
It was really good!!!
(I am saying this from my heart, I was not paid to promote them)
HERE is their website if you're interested in checking 'em out!
We enjoyed it!
I am not really a fan of potatoes at all in any form, but I really LOVED their potato salad. This was crazy for me, because potatoes are NOT my jam.
|MMMMMM pulled pork!|
|The dress goes great with BBQ!|
|Perfect lunch date with the hubs!|
Then, later in the day, The dress was perfect for a pool cover-up!
