Shirtdress redo

Pink and Navy color combinations are my current obsession. So when I saw this for .99 cents I grabbed it right up.

Image

Let’s take a closer look at that print

Image
How pretty! πŸ™‚

Minus the pointless ruffles along the button front closure and the fact that this was a size too big… it was basically ready to go. All I needed to do was take this in just a bit

Image
Pin it for the perfect fit…
Image
…then you sew it down.

I sort of used this as a basting stitch, which is why I didn’t care about the color of the thread.Β  I had every intention of taking in this seam with my Janome 7034D. But, removing pins every 2 seconds as you sew with your Serger is annoying, so I did this straight stitch beforehand so I wouldn’t have to worry about pins πŸ™‚

Image

I came pretty darn close to getting it right on the beige thread.

Image
This thread matches the roses a lil better too.

Now, I like ruffles as much as the next girl… but ruffles have to have a purpose. The ruffles on this shirt were just stupid and served no function whatsoever. So I cut them off.

Image

I paired it with my favorite everyday necklace I got from my former Job #2! Yes, Job #2 and I decided to amicably split after a 2 year relationship πŸ™‚ I enjoyed Job #3 so much, I decided to stay there on a full part-time basis instead of just a seasonal basis… hence the reason for leaving “Job #2.” I LOVE it there (At Job #3, that is). And, I’m seriously really happy about this change. So… “Job #3” becomes the new and improved “Job #2” πŸ™‚

Image

I also paired it with a wicked belt I got at at friend’s garage sale last Summer.

Image
I’m in love with this belt!

I would’ve loved to be all “bloggy” and post artistic pics of me outside but….

Image
…that’s not gonna happen any time soon :-/

So, we’re stuck with mundane indoor shots πŸ™‚

Image

Ta ta for now πŸ™‚
