The boy is taking me to see Kristin Chenoweth perform at the Disney Concert Hall in Downtown LA on New Year’s Eve and I think an event as momentous as that requires a fabulous dress! But rather than buy a new one, I thought I’d try my hand at fixing up an old one…A sparkly, chiffon dress from the l970’s! Oooo Preetttyyy!
This dress was my mother’s (and she probably doesn’t even realize I have it, sorry mom! Hope this is ok!) And it really is beautiful, but it needs a few little fixes. For instance, the straps are broken and the length is just a tad too long, making it unflattering for me and my stubby legs.
My mission is to transform this dress with a few minor adjustments into the New Year’s Eve gown of my dreams! Check back Friday for the finished product and wish me luck!
Oh and P.S. — That sparkly beret atop my head? That was a Christmas gift from the boy. He likes it when I look like a disco ball, he told me so!
