Let's call it Fashion Frenzy Friday!
Step 1: Hack off the bodice from the skirt with pinking sheers.
Hacked off bodice
Wacked off skirt and zipper
Almost every seam was wacked at! I used another top from my closet to cut up for the back bodice piece to replace the need for a zipper. Here a wack there a wack...everywhere a wack wack!
So I did not take photos of the actual piecing and sewing because as I said earlier...I had no pins! Couldn't really photo and hold everything in place while dealing with breaking sewing needles...they don't really take well to sewing over beaded fabric bodices.
A little crying.
and a bit of HOT Glue...shhhh don't tell.
Alexis was very happy to see this waiting for her after school.
Added pink burnt ribbon rose to replace original black bow.
Added my new pink scarf as her shawl.
Not bad for such a crazy attempt at frenzied sewing...
definately not perfect
So, sew, So...$6 for thrift store dress.
2.99 for clearance scarf
Free hair appointment (gotta luv my sister is a hair dresser)
One happy little princess & an overjoyed Momma
Oh I have more...
On a serious note... I will NEVER ever NEVER attempt this again if I want to keep my sanity!
So jealous of this kid's hair... really!
The after party hair is just as FAB as the updo!
Don't forget about my giveaway over at My Girlish Whims...there's still time to hop over there and enter!
Good Luck to those who do.
