The number of long, shapeless 90’s dresses at the thrift shop is amazing! I loved the $1.24 purple number with it’s awkward side ties and flower buttons.Plus it has pockets; I never turn down a dress with pockets!
Buh bye shoulder pads!
See ya later flower buttons!
And I couldn’t leave the loops with no buttons so those went to the scrap pile.
And the obligatory V-neck cut and pinned. (I promise someday I’ll be creative and do something besides a v-neck).
Then this lovely dress got a 10 inch loop taken off the bottom. Don’t worry, you’ll see that bottom loop again (because I know you were quite worried).
Snip, snip, snip.
I took the extra fabric from the bottom cut it into a long strip and used it as a sash attached it with an awesome brooch. It’s been a long weekend, time for Sunday afternoon nap before heading into the lab. Our department is working towards incorporating a Ph.D. program so according to my advisor everything needs to appear “organized but like we are incredibly busy”. I think I can do that. 🙂 Have a great day!
