No posts in the last week or so but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been up to some mischief. I’ve created something rather special a few days ago but that will be under wraps for just a little while longer. In the meantime, let me bring you my latest work in progress:
No, no! I didn’t make the dress, I actually bought it from an online clothing store. Strange, huh? I wouldn’t typically buy a ready-to-wear dress (I rather sew one!), but this particular dress is not typical. This dress, The June Wrap as it is called, was designed by my eldest sister when she entered a dress design contest that was held by the indie clothing line: Christa-Taylor. Unfortunately, Christa-Taylor went out of business last year and when we heard that this was happening, I quickly snatched up this polka dot wrap mainly for sentimental reasons.
Isn’t it such a pretty dress? I wish I could have worn it as soon as it came in the mail, but there was a problem. Way too short for me! I’m a tall person so the dress’s hem fell above my knees. I sort of knew this would happen before I bought it so it was no shocker. You see, I had a plan. And that is what I am working on right now. I am going to add length to the dress without altering my June Wrap in any way. Intriguing, huh? I’ll tell you more about it as soon as I make some headway into this project. Just wait and see!
