Another birthday has come around. This time it's the 32nd one. I feel great. :-)
Earlier this week I finished an outfit created by turning one of my favorite dresses into a two-piece.
I used some of those hemp and organic cotton pieces mentioned in my last post, which matched the print fabric perfectly. There's also a couple of pieces of dark denim in there--just some scraps left over from another project.
I got the printed dress a few years ago on clearance for $1.99 (!!!) at Macy's. I really liked it because of the pockets and the length. After giving birth, I realized it was also great due to the front zipper, which made nursing easy. Now, I started out only intending to repair the dress, since the zipper had broken. In the process of removing said zipper, I ripped the dress. (Yeah. Sometime removing a zipper without a seam ripper works. Sometimes, not so much. :-/) So, from then on it was all about creating something new. There's no longer a zipper in the front, but I'm fine with that. It's still pretty functional for what I need.
I think today will be a beach day! :)
Have a wonderful Thursday.~
