Spring Break Project #3: Completed by Jomarie!
Tuesday, April 19, 2011
Yup, as my title says, my dearest cousin Jomarie was the one to do Spring Break Project #3. I had a really hard time altering a dress that I thrifted with Erin:
I was in love with this dress right when I set my eyes on it even though it was, as my sister called it, "frumpy." But I couldn't put it down (Erin can testify to that statement!). However, when I tried to alter it, I got really confused... so I took it to my younger cousin, who is amazingly talented with a sewing machine.
Sidenote: Actually, when I was a senior in high school and she was a sophomore in high school, she made my prom dress!
(Bahahah, my 17-year-old self is so awkward...)
So Jomarie is amazing. She taught me how to make my dress into a skirt and taught me how to make another skirt that I'll be wearing on Easter Sunday. :) As I was working on those other projects, I handed over the thrifted dress and let her take on the "frumpy dress".
She was able to alter the length, the waist, change the cut at the top and change the straps. Basically, she made it perfect. :)
This is my new favorite dress. I want to wear it all the time! I haven't fit a dress this perfectly since... well, since prom. :P
Dress:Thrifted and altered by Jomarie (my cousin) || Belt: Thrifted || Flats: Borrowed from Carmel
So thank you again to my cousin, Jomarie, for all of her hard work and for making this dress ten million times better than I ever could. :) I love you!
