Hippie chic

The fabulous number is one that I got at last Sunday's garage sale for $.50.  What a beauty!

I really like the colors and the design but the dress itself is completely out of control.  Those crazy sleeves and that ridiculous length had to go.

I thought I was making it long enough to be a dress but once I put it on I realized wearing this as a dress at this length would have been a bit inappropriate.  So I went for a tunic.  I hemmed up the bottom and the sleeves and took it in on the sides.  I also cut 2 strips from the bottom to create a sash.

Cute, right???  Man, I love this.  Best hobby ever!
