This week has been busy. Christmas parties, cleaning, decorating and the like. I was going to post a recipe since I haven't done that but it didn't get done. And it is hard to take a decent photo of our dinner when it gets dark at 4:30. Flash food photography isn't pretty. But my new dress is!
It started out looking like this.
I found it at our local thrift store for $2. I liked the sheerness. Is that word? Anyway, I started to go one direction with this dress months ago. But I just didn't like it. I cut the sleeves and tried to make it into a v-neck. It wasn't working. So, I just put it in my closet and then forgot about it. A friend of mine came by and (I was bragging about how cool I am that I refashion clothes) I was showing her some of my ideas and she was the one that said I should make it into a baby doll dress. And so that's what I did. I turned it around, so there is a little button in the back, and made it into an empire waist baby doll dress and I love it. I have worn it twice now. You can't tell in the picture but my tights are brown with flowers all over them. It looked really cute with my pink flower pin. I think that I am going to have to retire it for the summer though. I wore a sweater, tights and a slip and I was still cold.
Don't you think I just sparkled in it? Oh wait that's just the flash. And trust me this was the best picture. I think I need to figure out the timer button on my camera because this picture in the mirror thing just isn't working.
