I mean, did the person who used to wear/own this come in contact with a tiger? In case it's a little tricky for you to understand, enjoy the reenactment.
Now, I could patch up that hole or I could just cut it off. I went with the latter.
I began to trim off part of the polka-dotted sleeve which will take care of that hole issue.
The sleeve has taken on new form! Love where this is going...
Ooh, and I clearly had to get rid of these.
After the pad removal came the fitting of the body. I pinned each side, from the new arm hole down to the waist, a few inches to get rid of the billowyness.
My last step was shortening up the pleated skirt. I cut off a good foot and also trimmed off a two inch section from that excess to be wrapped around my waist.
My dress was ready for a little screening action (The Kids Are All Right is awesome - Mark Ruffalo/Annette Bening are fab!) and some posing in the parking garage, like you do.
Earlier on in the day, AR asked if there were crawfish on the dress because the red fabric kind of looked like them.
Unfortunately, they were just flowers, but I did come across this ridiculous article of clothing which did rock some shellfish.
There are really items out there that have images of mini lobsters, as well as mint juleps and "shark attack" scenes on them!!
I prefer eating lobster instead of wearing it, however I would love to see the person who's got that puppy in their closet!
And yes...I'm shivering in July. Cheeeeeeese!!
