Donnie and Marie just might be the most obnoxious singing duo I've ever heard/seen, but they provided an excellent description of today's recreation.
I only have before and after pictures of this one. Nothing of the process. Mostly because there wasn't much to show. So here's how it started.
I got it at the Salvation Army Thrift Store for $3.00. It's actually home made. I'm really not sure what this person was going for. It had a muu muu-esque quality to it with some interesting additions. Each side had an almost inappropriately high slit, yet the sleeves were full length and the collar reminded me a bit of something fit for an Elvira costume.
After some sleeve removal, length removal, and width adjustment I had a whole new dress.
Speaking of awful music; as I'm looking at this picture, I can almost imagine it with Doc Martens being worn to a Gin Blossoms concert in 1993. I would not have been the one attending the concert, however, since I just in middle school. And anyhow, if it was up to me I would have preferred Alice in Chains or Nirvana.
I digress! I love this dress. I've worn it twice now with two different styles of boots. It's perfect for the scorching weather we've been having and it's just darn pretty!
