I got this lovely floral number sent my way by Lee. "I liked the ruffles on this piece and the sheerness between the stripes, but there is a lot going on. It is the perfect Easter dress if you ask me!"
Lee's right - there is a lot going on here! I like the ruffles but they were a bit much. The top of the piece is a little big too, so I've got an idea for that too...
First I cut the sleeves!
Decided to make them short and with the leftovers...
I trimmed these elastic ruffled bits off though because I wanted to still use them! They look like little garters! Anyone getting married? :)
With my new sleeves, I affixed the elastic bracelets to the end and I did a little pinch and cinch at the collarbone area!! That was exactly the thing to make the top of the dress fit like a glove!
This dress couldn't be more comfortable!! I added my brown almost-over-the-knee boots, a skinny leather brown belt and some pink beads around my neck!!
Visited my gal REF in town from San Fran at her hotel, The London, and ordered some room service :)
There was no 'kitchen nightmare' with the tortilla soup and shoestring fries we ordered, but I do love Gordon Ramsey when he goes all out fixing up those disastrous eateries!! She had the room slippers on and I took off my boots to just relax with my gal over snacks and chats.
Relaxing Monday night is just the way to start off the week :) Thank you for the piece Lee!!
