We're back to an even amount of days and dollars!! Remember this dress from Day 186??
That was crafted into this??
Well, I'm working with the skirt leftover today which first and foremost, doesn't cost a dime (woo hoo!) and is going to get a little makeover perfect for cooking club tonight!
My first step was folding the skirt so the ruffle area that was at the bottom is now in the middle.
I then pinned this down and sewed it into place.
We're going with a quick apron today (thanks DL for the request!!) and this new ruffle is going to hit me right at my knees.
I then cut the sides off and got the amount of fabric that would be covering my legs just right. I'm using a little bit of flour today and I can't wait to actually rub it off onto my new apron!!
I trimmed, then folded down the raw edging, and added some sashes (extra fabric!) that I would be pulling to the back and tying to keep it in place.
Now it was round two for sewing and I stitched down my edges and my new sashes - almost ready for cook time!
I grabbed some vino and spanakopita and brought it to the Mediterranean covered table.
That was our theme, so we had delish orzo and feta, spinach and pine nuts with raisins and amazing homemade tzatziki to go with some baked falafel pockets.
We were reminiscing that we just hit our year mark of monthly cooking nights which called for a little wine glass clinking as we cheersed each other and got grubbing!
This was the take two shot - it looked a little more like the commercial version of my after shot... "Hey, Mamma Mia, I work at an Italian restaurant as I wear my gingham top from Day 115 to pour some vino into your glass. Ciao Bella!" (Clearly in my head I'm saying this in an Italian accent.) Couldn't resist adding it in...plus it's a little closer up on my apron. I cannot wait to use it at the next cooking night which we decided will be Southern themed. I'll be asking for fave recipes as we get closer...
