Zooey’s Party Dress

Well, now that it is 12:40 AM and I feel like I will wake up tomorrow with much less than enough sleep, I have finally finished Zooey’s party dress…yay!…

I’m too tired to be excited.  Sorry.  I can rally tomorrow if you like, but tonight it is just too late and I have too big of a day tomorrow to explain all the details.

First I would like to show you the finished product, so I feel better.  (:

And some close-ups…

Have I mentioned that this is my first try at lining a dress?  I think it turned out pretty well!

Also, all of the materials for this dress (including the elastic for the top) came from a dress that doesn’t exactly flatter my body type.  A friend gave it to me after going through her closet when she moved, and I made the mistake of thinking that just because it looked good on her it would also look good on me.  HA!  Silly.  (:  But still!  I loved the fabric so I just couldn’t give it away.  And I think it’s a great summer party dress!

The End!

ps–What projects are YOU working on?  (:

About lilyellowbird

I am a 22-year-old stay-at-home mom (returning to school in the fall of 2011) who is choosing my family, sewing, crafting, repurposing, and general life stuff to occupy my time. Here you will find updates on the new and exciting (Zooey just got two teeth!) and different things that I am trying (dyeing fabric a nice teal blue for a circle skirt). Since Wardrobe Refashion is now closing, I will not be able to sign up and post new things on their website, but here is where I would like to publicly "take the pledge", so to speak, and rework, refashion, and otherwise make my family's clothing for the next two months. I will post photos once a week (if at all possible) of new projects, etc. Stay tuned!
