Revamped

I celebrated a huge first today. This is actually the first time I've cut a dress. I cut this dress to its current length from its original ankle length. I'd never cut a dress/skirt for fear i'll mess it up as i can't sew that well with a machine(hemming by hand takes so long...*i'm a bit impatient*).But i took a chance with this dress because i like the fun print and easy fabric and i really wanted to wear it. And i LOVE how it turned out. The ends are a bit crooked, but i think i can hem it later. I spent the day with my younger sister, and I wore the dress out for a test run with my second pair of new gladiator sandals. I went downtown to school to get some books, then stopped at Atlantic Station for lunch. Good times in fun dresses! TGIF

oh, and i'm featured on Mimi Magazine's blog. Its a huge delight because its one of my favorite sites! Check out the Mimi Magazine site here!

va va voom. I love the short cut. I dont know how the ankle length was, but I prefer the short length. It added a flirty flare to it. I'm off to my wardrobe to see what dress to cut.
