BOLD REMIX

FRIDAY, JUNE 22, 2012


Remember my last post where I mentioned WICKED?
You know, the back story on Glenda the good "witch" and the other not so good one.
Well, I got to go see it with M.S. and her family.

I love the Wizard of Oz, own Return to Oz- although a little too dark for kids, The Wiz,
a cartoon version of the Wizard of Oz and Veggies Tales' The Wonderful Wizard of Ha's
but
 had NEVER seen or really heard much about Wicked.
It's M.S. & her sis E's favorite musical. She too has a sis with the letter E!
I'm not much on witches and the such but I could not pass this up.
Thanks girls, it was fun!


SHEATH DRESS 
Me and M.S
She calls me mom. :)


REDO
A "bit" ago I worked on this *donation purchase* blouse, which I think I may keep
heehee
(*donation purchase* something I bought to work on and donate)
I LOVE the colors and pattern!

BLOUSE- thrifted .99
BOLD BLOUSE REDO
BEFORE:Front/Back



I've been happily busy with my kiddos and my childcare ones as school has been out almost a month now, so I'm barely posting.

And guess what?!

PicMonkey is finally up and running which allows me to make the collages I was missing.



Its not as good yet, but I'm sure it will be eventually.

BOLD BLOUSE REDO

Left: I initially didn't take any of the width in thinking it would work out ok. I learned later that I should have.
Top: I used elastic 16" long, pinned across both sides and along the middle of the front side, as evenly as possible.
Bottom:  I then stretched fabric and elastic as I sewed.

After trying it on, I realized how big it still was so I took it in from the arm pit all the way down to elastic, tapering as I went.
I removed the tag from the inside which allows me to wear it both ways.

AFTER: front/back

BOLD BLOUSE REDO

I chose to wear it backwards, so I opened up buttons and ironed in the v-neck.

Left: I wore with silver jewelry, jeans, black flats & my orange bangle for fun.

Top: Back view
Bottom: Side

Pretty easy redo!

PS...

I've worked on a few other items, some I just donated to the sale this week.
I included little tags with the blog info.....maybe one day I'll see those items again BUT on someone else!
Wouldn't that be SOOO COOL?!
I'll get to posting those soon.
