I'm not sure if it was the sense of accomplishment I felt after successfully altering the red dress or if it was the absolute boredom that came over me after being snowed in for two days and having the only human interaction be watching my favorite TV shows and then reminding myself that the characters are not actually real people nor are they my friends (did I just divulge too much personal information?). Either way, I altered another dress for my store.
It was once a way too long, frumpy floral frock from the 90's. Now it is a just the right length, fabulous floral frock from the 90's. In fact, I think it could even win a best dress award if entered in a contest. Okay, maybe not, but I do think it turned out pretty great. Especially since I am still figuring out this whole sewing thing and didn't have my sewing machine with me (I was staying at someone else's house) therefore, I stitched the whole thing by hand. My poor little aching back and pin pricked fingers at least deserve to be awarded a massage.
