Feeling Oh So Lofty:)

Just kidding, I’m really not the supercilious type, but I am a little sew-proud of myself on this project.  I found this Loft dress at the thrift store for 6 bucks, and it seriously looked like it had never or hardly ever been worn, and the fabric pattern???? Oh so pretty and feminine.  I just loved everything about the dress… well almost.  Even though the overall cut was wonderful, (wrapped top and pleated bottom-love) the dress was just barely too short and had no sleeves.  I quickly decided that I would turn this into a sort of Tunic-Shirt, to be worn with leggings when the weather is on the warmer side or jeggings when it’s on the cooler side.  To make this idea a reality,  I snipped off a couple of inches from the bottom half of the dress and used that material to make sleeves and it turned out that it gave the dress a completely different look that I immediately fell in love with.  Hope you enjoy this playful, yet graceful pieceJ



Sorry about the lamo photos!  My old Camera, that I was forced to switch back to upon my Cannon's death, doesn't do well in artificial lighting.

You are so dang cute. I wish I could hang out with you all the time! Maybe then your cuteness would rub off on me. Great work yet again. Also, I LOVE your shoes.

PS do you ever have a hard time wearing leggings with Gs? I feel like a lot of them are so sheer, and therefore I am never brave enough to wear them unless I am teaching a dance class or something. Do you get a special, thicker kind? Your suggestions are welcome.

The leggings I am wearing are cotton and I picked them up at old navy... And yes, I do have to be sure that when I am buying leggings they are not see through, it can make shopping interesting. Also, AND YES, it would be so fun to live close and hang out to our hearts content!!!
