Quite Possibly My Greatest Challenge!

This beautiful princess dress from the 80's goes well with my messy kitchen.
I bought it for $6.00 at my local thrift store. It is more than I usually spend on something I didn't quite know what to do with, but I bought it anyway.

Bows, lace and blue satin! YES!



I picked apart the entire dress to see if it would inspire me.

That's a whole lotta fabric!


The sleeves themselves could have been another dress! OY!


I have a raglan sleeve t-shirt pattern that inspired me.


With all that sleeve fabric, it wasn't long enough, so I had to add some to the bottom.




I've also had this lion fabric for a while waiting for the perfect project, and this was it!
Can you tell what I'm using it for?




Pin, sew, repeat.


I attached a zipper, some navy knit fabric for the collar, cuffs and hem band. 

I MADE A BOMBER JACKET Y'ALL!
This is quite possibly my greatest challenge, and the one thing I'm so proud of myself for!



Lion fabric lining, and a bow topped inside pocket!!!!!!!!


I wore it out to dinner, and to the Speedway with my fam 
to watch a good friend race his car!




Please tell me what you think!
I can't wait to wear it again!

See you next time!
