Well hi welcome to my little blog. Just my little corner of craftiness, sewing, and refashioning. I am also a newly gluten free eater so you have a little bit of recipes mixed in here.

Day 14: Breakfast at Tiffany's Dress Refashion

When I first started this dress refashion, I actually called it aqua tent.



Because literally it was a tent made up of aqua polyester. It had a zipper but tied on the sides???? Too long. Those sleeves are horrible! bleh!

So I cut off some of the bottom. Took some of the dress in and fixed the armholes. Wow the dress already looked so much nicer!!!


Then for some reason, I wanted to add some pearls to the bodice, after I got rid of the ugly, I realized I had a nice Tiffany blue dress. So I blinged the bodice with pearls I had in my stash!

First, I just took the larger pearls and outlined the area I wanted to fill in.

Then I randomly scattered the larger pearls throughout the entire area (I used all of them! yay!). Next I took the next size below and added. And then filled in with smaller sizes so you could barely see the blue underneath. Done!




I love this dress so much! The color is great. The pearls let me not have to wear a necklace. It is now breakfast at tiffany's and no longer aqua tent! :) 14 days down 46 more days to go! For all of my 60 days to dc blogging posts click here.
