Thank you, ever so much, for your sweet words of encouragement on my last post. I am so much more comfortable behind the camera, but your comments gave me the confidence to push onward and show you another one of my projects from The Pile.
Staging photos like these makes me want to laugh my head off. However, they are necessary if I'm going to show you the proper before and after. Draping stuff from a hanger just wouldn't do it. We also have very few blank walls in the house. This is in the master bathroom. I am standing next to the toilet looking down, very seriously. Excuse me, I have more giggling to do...
Okay. Let's do this.
My sister gave me this dark gray stretch t-shirt jersey dress back in 1998 when she worked at Old Navy AND got a hefty discount AND it had gone to clearance. Seriously, I think she paid about $1.50. I wore it to work with a cardigan all the time. I wore it to school functions. I wore it to at least one funeral.
And then I stopped wearing it because, somewhere along the way, the length started to bother me. And it felt a bit too drab. And, let's be honest, I was bored.
So it sat in The Pile for a very long time.
Until I got it out last week, chopped off several inches, and hemmed it. It was instantly better.
So I took a lesson from Tif and cut a straight enough strip from a vintage lace tablecloth and attached it to the inside of the neckline. It was exactly what I needed.
(My grandmother wanted me to have that picture when she passed away. I have it hanging in my bedroom and I love that it pops up on the blog when I'm posting about clothes and stuff. She was the ultimate accessorizer and girlie-girl. She would appreciate this, too.)
There is more in The Pile. I think I'm going to have to have a better attitude about it from now on. This is actually fun.
What's in yours?
