I finally finished shortening the sleeves on this rocking horse print square dance frock I picked up in Alamagorgdo, New Mexico.....they were ghastly, and I simply had to hack them off with a pair of nail scissors somewhere along the road....
With what I cut off, I made some wee pockets, if you can see them.
It's a modern frock, someones homemade job, and it makes me feel happy with it's childish print.
Heart earrings-Santa Fe
Blue bead earrings-made by a lovely friend
Turquoise necklace-gift from G's folks, they got it in Arizona, I think
Silver necklace-a Shabby Chic market
We were blessed with sunshine yesterday.
Not just sunshine, but a glorious warm day, with temperatures up to the 20's, I believe.
Bring it ON!
Shoes-Goodwill, Santa Fe
I've also been altering this frock that my beloved Vix sent me.
It was an ankle length sack.
I did take a before pic, but due to a computer virus over the weekend, I seem to have lost my picture files, hopefully temporarily.
I shortened it, and used the excess to make this jabot with a wee bow.
I suspect I am about to succumb to a jabot frenzy....they're so Mrs Slocombe, and I think I need many.....and I like to think they'll detract from the old booboids a bit.
I may still need to shorten it a little bit more, but I can't wait to rock an all white look.
And how pleasant it was to finally sit down and have a little sew....I keep whining about getting inspired, but I think the truth is that I am simply too lazy half the time!
It's just like my report cards from school; "could do better".......
