Bring the spring!! That's right, the sun and the warm temps are in full effect this week. That's what I like to see May! You're bringing all the boys to the yard and I love you for that. The pollen I could do a little less of, but I'll let you off the hook if you keep it in the 70s all week-long. In celebration, I opted to go for the most springy thing I could find. A flowy dress that was √ºber sheer.
Before this got to the "after" picture, there were a few things I wanted to take care of. First, I got rid of the sleeves. I took my seam ripper out and removed them at the shoulders. Next came the top layer of sheer fabric that went over my chest. There were two layers and it was like a little extra shield of fabric that was stitched on top of a perfectly fine V necked piece. I removed the excess material from the front and the back, leaving the lovely slightly V neck ready for its close up. Now with that extra material from the sleeves, I stitched together a little sash to wrap around the dress to cinch it up a bit.
Being that it was totally Sheer McGee, I had to wear something underneath so I wouldn't have to worry about the flashing issue. I went to my trusty grey silk slip (which was a sample sale find years ago for $5!!) and put it on underneath my finished project...
I'm not flashing anyone, however my knees are showing a little bit of skin and are trying their hardest to peek through the sheer fabric.
Such a flowy and comfy dress for the day - I wish I had a garden party to attend instead of work :)
My little sash/tie gave the dress even more shape and I think I'll be rewearing that again soon...PS, up close, isn't this floral fabric pretty killer? I'm highly obsessed :)
