Palm Sunday dress

No need to readjust your screen, folks. You read right.

A dress.

So, like, what’s wrong with this dress?

The dress fits perfectly, no? It’s always nice when that happens. But the length is pretty atrocious.

Chop! Lining and all.

Even though I wear a dress maybe once a year, maybe, I love that leopard print. That’s why I bought this. That button detail on the yoke/bodice is pretty nifty too.

I cleaned up the edge with a nice hem.


Sew it down…

Just a boring straight stitch in a far left needle position.

Then, I had to deal with the lining.


After I hemmed the main dress, the lining was now hanging below the stitch. Not groovy. So I ran it under our Janome 634D Serger to cut off the excess and bind up the fraytastic edge.

Probably could’ve set the tensions better. Oh well, no one will see it anyway πŸ™‚

Would you judge me if I told you that was all I did to turn this into a super cute Palm Sunday dress?


It’s still quite chilly in Indiana, so I paired it with some leggings that I also did a bit of tweeking to.

The watermelon cardigan is a faithful standby and the glasses, well, they hide my freak nose.

Muffin approves… if only over my shoulder πŸ˜‰

The shoes are fun, aren’t they? I got them on eBay (I’m pretty sure they were ‘hot’ because these puppies retail for $129 & I got them for $19 “brand new”… oopsies). They’re supposedly designed for us folks with horrible feet. Yeah… they’re not. After church, I was ready for my Dansko’s!

See the fun buttons?

My camera battery was dying, which is why I have all these random pics of me at home and not of me wearing this to church.

I couldn’t handle it… I had to slip into my Dansko’s. These are my new Spring models πŸ™‚

I should probably show you what it looks like without the cardigan…

Well THIS is awkward

Fish eye lens probably wasn’t the best for this shot…

There we go

Super simple refashion, yes. I like the simple ones! πŸ™‚

But that small change made a big difference! And, as always, this was only .99 cents. Β What’s not to like about that?
