Um, hello two-toned green dress with two very interesting, boob-pockety spots!! I feel like there are numerous jokes to be made here.
I did a leprechaun dance before...
...making this dress magically delicious!
First thing to go...the POCKETS!!
After both were removed, I shortened the sleeves. The cuffs were elastic and slightly pouffy so I figured shortening would be the best way to eliminate the bulkiness of the thick polyester. (This material was real thick, yo!)
The length came next - off went more than a foot of material!! It's tunic time!
Because the polyester was not going to pull, I left the edges raw. From pockets in precarious positions to a brand new tunic to say "Erin Go Bragh" in, my St. Patty's Day ensemble was complete!
The piece feels even more mod now. I really love the two shades of green together and the sleeves cutting off at the elbow.
The tunic got paired with skinny jeans and a vintage Leo medallion with green stone, along with my very Irish red hair!!
I got to enjoy some weekend girlfriend time making Shrinky Dink "Lucky Charms" to celebrate the holiday too.
We traced designs on Shrinky Dink paper to turn them into fab charms for necklaces, earrings, and charm bracelets. I went with a best friend, broken heart necklace design that I shaded in with colored pencils.
SPR went with throwback stars...
We dined on Beef Wellington, toffee pudding, Guinness cupcakes, Shepherd's Pie, and these guys...
Nothing like a homemade Shamrock Shake!! After eating, crafting, and girlfriend catching up time, our charms all shrunk down to size.
I loved how these turned out and can't wait to perfect my sketching skills by making more of these guys for my charm bracelet.
