Anywho, when having to decide what to wear to Little Guy's "Meet the Teacher" night at his new school, there was no question...jeans and a top. Enter this little ditty:
Prom bomb, bridesmaid dress, or something in between? All I was sure of was that while the color was fantastic, the stretch satin was sooo not flattering, and a little too formal for everyday wear. I loved the ruched detailing though, and thought a quick fix would do this dress justice.
The fit up top was a bit baggy so I seam ripped the straps at the back,
and marked about 1 inch from the original seam. I placed the straps back into place and stitched.
I measure about 5 1/2 inches from the end of the ruched detailing and snip.
Then folded in the new hem twice and stitched...zig-zag style.
Finished product with my favorite (okay, one of my favorite) pairs of jeans, just in time to "Meet the Teacher."
But first...a little Fatburger and chocolate milk shake for the Little Guy.
