I must say how giddy I've been getting playing around with all these wedding dresses!! With 30 days until my wedding, I can't even tell you how excited I am!
PS, I'm totally channeling Steve Carell from The 40 Year Old Virgin one-sheet in my pose above...
Back to the dress...there was a lot of pouffy fabric that made a lovely little train...
...but trying to figure out the best way to work with this dress, I had a feeling I was going to remove it.
If only it was appropriate to wear trains on the regular, because I'm totally digging this look!
There's lots to play with and I can't wait to get started!
First off, we're gonna hit the bottle. Hit the bottle of dye, that is!
SO...dress is dyed!! And the train has been removed!! (The train used to be attached to the seam on the left side - right where there's a slight discoloration between the different fabrics. This is always so fascinating though the way different dyes take to fabric!)
Moving along...now that the dress is dyed it's time to trim and re-hem. I love the idea of wearing this more as a tunic styled piece over jeans, so the length is saying sayonara!
(PS, this is the length (pun intended!!) I go to really test out how long a piece should be 🙄 Thanks to the fiancé for the "from where I stand" shot to help gauge!!)
I took my scissors and trimmed away!
Once the length was secured, it was time to stitch it all in place.
And after all those adjustments, the wedding dress was ready to be worn again!
Yup, it's TOTALLY cool to do a double take. I think I did a 40 take!
It makes me SO happy to find life in these pieces that have been donated and given away. Someone chose these dresses to wear on their special day and now I get to have my own special day in them too! They just won't totally look the same.
I had dinner in it.
I went to the movies in it. (And when you get to the theater REALLY early, you also jump down right in front of the screen because there's nobody else there!)
I matched a tie to it in Zara.
The 2.0 version of this dress was having a GRAND day, let me tell you.
The countdown continues tomorrow!! For extra sneak peeks of dresses and outtakes hop over to Instagram!
