After all the yammering I did about dresses in my last post, I thought it might be fun to do something a little different and show you the sort of thing I mean when I say I have dresses altered. Oh, yes, by the way — for those of you who are under the impression that I do it on my own, I don’t. I mean, yes, I can sew. A button, or a hem, or, one memorable time, replace the stretched-out elastic in a pair of nine-year-old pajama pants because I love them too much to throw them out! But I can’t do this kind of thing. I go to a seamstress and tell her what I want done — that’s about my only contribution to the process!
These are in no particular order, but they aren’t very recent. I had some of them made for friends’ weddings, and, well, since I’m an old maid, that was quite a while ago. 😉 I love doing it, but lately I’ve had no particular reason for it. I guess I still don’t, since I could technically just wear one I already have for my nephew’s bar mitzvah… heaven only knows I’ve got enough of them! Technically.
It looks like I have somewhat of an affinity for black, wouldn’t you say?! I didn’t even realize until I compiled this post that all but one of them are black. Hmm.
Regular posting to resume tomorrow, I suppose. Until then — enjoy the rest of your weekend.
