Picture Perfect


Happy December! I love this time of year don’t you?

A few months back while shopping at my new favorite thrift store Sanford And Sons, I picked up this Gem for $2:

The dress looks black in the picture but it’a actually a deep Hunter green. Which means Christmas to me. It’s also a stretchy velvet which very comfortable and just pretty. A couple of things confused me about this one though…Why would a winter dress have short sleeves? Why is there slit in the front?

What the?
What the?

Anyway on to the transformation! First I did some snipping using a top I already had as a guide:

I like the length

Then took a look. It was cold the day I refashioned this one. Very cold. That inspired me to add sleeves to this one. I have to say…I am scared of sleeves! Have you ever tried to cut one out and attach it? It’s not shaped like you would think.

Doesn't look like a sleeve does it?

Yea so me being me I decided to take some of the bottom scrap and just add it to the sleeve that was already there. It turned out pretty well don’t ya think?

 

I love!

This cute top was picture perfect for our small trip to Atlanta to get our pictures taken by my lovely sister-in-love Jessica Blackwood. Here are some of the shots:
