Be Mine

So it’s been a while. Sorry about that. I’ll get to that later (Maybe. You know how I am.) but for now we’re going to focus on today: Single Awareness Saturday.

IMG_2030This is my date tonight, and I’m pretty sure she’s only in it for the food.*

To celebrate this special occasion, I picked up this lovely frock.

It had a sad, cat lady vibe, but was full of potential. I found some inspiration on Etsy, and got to work.

First I removed the pleated, crazy tight collar.

Then I chopped some length off the billowy sleeves and the skirt…

…and started taking in the sleeves and the sides of the dress.

Once the sides and sleeves were done, I started working on a new neckline. It was still a bit tight, so I opened it up about 1/4 inch all the way around.

Last, but not least, I hemmed the bottom of the skirt.

I decided to accessorize my new dress with some black wedges, a leopard print belt, and black and gold earrings.
