The dress-that-used-to-be-called-Frankenstein is finished. And, I can’t call it Frankenstein any more.
Now we just call it “the lace dress.” Who would have guessed all those pieces-parts would come together like this? And so cheaply–everything came from my big pile of junk except the dye and zipper for a grand total cost of $2.66!
Daughter, the memorable Sparkle Jane, looks and feels great in this dress. She didn’t want to take it off, and wished there was some sort of party or occasion worthy of the dress TODAY.
We added the pin and sash to make it not quite so grown up. She is only going-on-13, after all.
The vacuuming, laundry, mirrors and more need attention, but it still feels like a successful weekend. Yay for a new dress! (Oh, and the sewing room needs a good cleaning, too. Creativity is messy!)
