I have my dresses altered and my bags packed
I am off on vacation to the exotic location of Minneapolis, Minnesota my hometown. I hear the snow has melted and I am excited to visit family and friends
Why so many bags you ask? I am going antiquing with my blog friend Garage Sale Gal, Deb. She visited my booth when she was in Orlando and I'm going to visit her's in Minnesota...How cool is that!
I needed some new clothes to pack and realized it was time for a little shopping trip...
I found this dress and loved it but, it was way to long.
When I cut off the bottom I ended up with some strips of fabric
I ran a basting stitch and then gathered and pinned them in a random design on the bodice
I did this all at night, hence the crummy pictures!
I pinned the strips in place and then machine sewed them on
Since this was a knit material I didn't have to worry about the raw edges unraveling
I loved this next dress because it fit like a glove but, was a little to plain and of course to long
I used my ruffle foot and gathered ribbon
Hemmed the dress, and I'm ready to go!
Oh, guess who else packed her bags????
She went to a blog follower that emailed and said she wanted her?!
Lets all wish her....Insert creepy music.....Well!
See you in a week
