Well, as I mentioned before, I was recently unemployed for a little bit (in between jobs) and as you read this I'll be dead smack in the middle of my new position in a doctor's office! I'm super excited for this new experience, even though it's very nerve wracking to be starting something new for the first time in two and a half years.
So, as usual, what do I do when I'm nervous? I craft!
Last year I made a bunch of elastic neck dresses. The elastic was a cop out because I didn't feel like putting in the yoke. They didn't quite look right, though, so I went back and added a contrasting yoke to three of the five dresses. I like it so much that I'm going to fix the other two as well!
Instead of just showing you pictures of the other ones I fixed, I added a little twist. It's been super snowy here over the last two weeks and I've been trapped inside, so I while I was taking pictures of the fixed dresses I also made little dress-up outfits. It was very fun and kept me from going completely stir crazy.
Megan loved this one originally, but with the uncomfortable peasant neck I never wore it. I am sure that now I've fixed it this will be one of my favorites. That cardi I bought on impulse from Retrospect on South St and never wore to work because I was afraid that the beads would get ripped off. Now that I have a less-move-furniture-type job, I hope I get to wear it more often! It's so pretty!
I never even posted this on the blog when it had the wrong neckline because I never once wore it after I made it, and that was earlier last spring. I DEFINITELY love it now! I love this fabric so much.
And finally, my trusty ole Gaslight Anthem shirt dress. I won't be able to wear this to work, but I could see it for shopping on the weekend with friends! (Or if I ever get to go to a concert again ;-) )
Thank you all for the kind comments on facebook, tumblr and on this blog. The last few months were hard but I feel so awesome right now that I can't help but believe 2014 is going to be great! Your support means so much.
Until next time!!
