New Years Eve Dress

I would like to start off by wishing everyone a Happy New Year!!! I hope you all had a fabulous time ringing in the new year with your loved ones!

For this very festive occasion I had to make the perfect dress! dscn1127

Going along with my hopes of adding more winter clothing to my closet I decided to keep the sleeves on this one! Shocking, I know! I chose this 1980’s special!

Don’t you just love the jewels on this one?!? So appropriate for a New Years celebration.dscn1128I removed the shoulder pad/hangy things combo from the dress. Buh-bye!

dscn1129My idea was to create a diamond pattern cut-out on the dress. Just under the neck line as well as on the cuff of the sleeves. I printed out a diamond pattern in medium and small sizes and cut out most of the diamonds. Once I brought my pattern to my dress I realized the small diamond pattern would be too small.

dscn1130I traced the diamond pattern on my dress by using tailors chalk.

dscn1133I cut out the diamonds with my small detail scissors. Brushed off the rest of the chalk with a damp cloth.

dscn1134I just love the wrap style of this dress!

Here are a couple snapshots from our New Years Eve get together…





Happy 2017!!!

Happy Refashioning!!!
