Sunflowers

Hello World!

For a long time I have seen pictures of this dress, by the company Shabby Apple, floating around in my Pinterest feed.
I honestly to goodnessly to seriously adore it!
But...It's a little bit out of my price range.

I recently came into the ownership of an old Mennonite dress.
It looked similar to this one.

At first I thought I'd try my hand at just hemming the Mennonite dress and voila it's a Shabby Apple makeover!
But once I started chopping, I started cutting, and once I started cutting, I started basting, and once I started basting, I started sewing, and then I came across this picture on Pinterest.
The bow back stole my heart!

I finally emerged from my scraps of fabric, thread stuck to my clothes, pins, and scissor wielding project, and this is what I created.  
I even gave myself pockets!
Because dresses with pockets equal pure bliss.

The back's bow is more subtle than planned but I'm still proud of myself for giving it a try, especially since I had no pattern that I worked off of for this dress.




Happy Fri-Yay, everyone!
What are your fun plans for the day? Are you a Shabby-Apple fan?

  6. This is the first post of yours that i've seen, however, although the fashion is fabulous, your hair is beautiful! if you don't do this, you should consider doing hair tutorials for people like me, who know nothing about hair!
