It is cold. It is rainy. It is gloomy. My train was cancelled this morning.
BUT, it is Chinese New Year and I only got a ten emails in my work inbox this morning, so I'm feelin' fine. And I also was super productive this weekend:
So clearly I did a total overhaul on this dress. I just loved the color and texture of it so much. Mint is totally trending people.
I removed the sleeves, and cut the dress in half basically, then took out the old crummy zipper. I added some darts in front, and taking the bottom part of the dress, added a little peplum bottom with some pleats and vents at the sides and back. I had to take in the sides a little bit, and then also had to add a new zipper (which brings me to no zippers in my stock so I will have to venture out in the rain today to replenish - there is nothing worse than being at the end of a project and coming up zipper-less).
The finishing touch was taking in the shoulder width a bit so it didn't cut my arms off in a strange way, and adding black bias tape to trim them. It came out so super cute, don't you think? If you are interested, she's over in the Shop...
