See? Ugly!!! I call this style of dress, or jumper, a school teacher dress. I've seen way to many school teachers wearing this kind of frumpy, neuter thing. Why in the heck did I, with all my stylish awesomeness, buy this thing? See that skirt? See all that light weight denim? I have a seam ripper, a bottle of dye, a pair of shears and a vintage 1970's pattern, that's why
and now it's cuter than kittens in a basket!
Before you get all excited, it's about 4 sizes to small for me. It's a size 12 for a 34" bust, and, well, lets not go there.
I used the view in front, but didn't add lace and used the left over print fabric for the bow. I guess I "upcycled". If you can't seem to find fabric, sheets or anything else to turn into clothes at second hand stores, why not check out the ready made stuff? Remember this blouse I made out of a long skirt?
Think outside the box and have fun. Even if the halter top turned into a hot mess, the fabric only cost $2. Even with the cost of a bottle of dye, it was cheaper than buying denim.
Now for some more news: I'm going to be taking a break from blogging and facebook for a couple of weeks. No major life events or anything dramatic, just a short break. I may be able to do a few Weird Doll Wednesday posts, but don't worry if I don't. I just means that I don't have my laptop and I don't like using other computers. I see you all in a couple of weeks.
