I don't know about the rest of you, but I began my day bright and early to catch the USA v. Slovenia World Cup match. This 7am game had me cheering, but honestly I was still in my pajamas :) I didn't have my outfit for the day together until after the final 2-2 score. Don't even get me started with that last goal we scored that got taken away...terrible call ref, terrible call!! I opted to go with a little red, white, & blue today for team spirit anyway.
I didn't even see this until I got home either...
It looked like this guy got a hold of the dress and went to town!!
I loved the buttons on the left shoulder and that's what got me hooked right away but I had to take care of the rips. No way I was going to leave it looking torn.
I began by cutting off the skirt - I left two inches there (underneath the elastic waist) and cut off everything below.
It was still a bit too short to wear as it was so I thought I'd make another layer to hang underneath - slightly cha cha and reminiscent of Day 162.
I trimmed off some more fabric to stitch onto the two inches that were already there...
...and pinned them into place before I hand stitched them together. After my stitchfest, I rolled up the sleeves to my elbows and added my jeans to complete my USA themed, red/white/blue outfit.
I guess I'll just have to make sure my outfit for the next USA match on Wednesday is ready to go before the game begins.
I feel like that may assist in rooting on my team and my favorite player, Herculez Gomez.
And honestly, he's not my fave solely because his name totally rules, he's a pretty awesome forward too.
TGIF! Happy weekend friends
