My sister is moving back into the Hope househould after this semeseter ends.. aka.. 2 weeks.
While she was away I made good use of that extra room... It being my craft room, Tuck's music room, and our work out room.
But all good things come to an end. I started cleaning it up the other day to get it ready for Brin.
Okay.. when I say started cleaning up... I mean.. I started organizing.. buuuut saw my re-fashion pile and couldn't resist bustin a few of those up. I mean... while its all out.. I just had to.
First I started slimming down some of Beck's jeans into straight/skinny jeans. Yeah.. I'm that mom.
Lucky for you, I won't bore you with before and after pictures.
I sewed up a size 10 skirt (that would have made any 10 year old skimpy) and slimmed it down for Arli.
I have 2 dresses like these. Flannel ugly collared dresses. I mean. it wasn't ugly.. just not my style. But I loved the flannel print and the main body of the dress. So it only needed a few tweeks.
Off came the choking collar and on came some poof flowers. And I added some of the same black material on the bottom of the dress just to look nicer.
I must say.. it was the simplest fix.. But I am so please with how it turned out. Of course I did not take enough time on photographing these in the better lighting, so you can't see the true beauty ;) Not to mention Arli was ready for bed in the last ones.
It was a good little sewing fix I needed to get out of my system before I tear that room apart.
