Dress Remix and a Zoo Trip

Thursday, May 23, 2013

I bought this dress at the Junk Gypsy tent at Warrenton a couple of seasons ago, and I just never could make it work well for me. It was cute as a tunic with a belt when I was pregnant with Tandy, but that’s history. On a whim, I did a little remix-ing with it the other night. Now we have two cute dress instead of one.


The girls wore them to the zoo today. Tandy seemed in awe of the panda chowing down.


I love Tandy’s simple dress. I just cut off the front pocket area keeping the bias trim in tack and tied up the remaining bias trim. I cut the back with a slight drop and left the arm holes long. It’s such an easy breezy style for summer. I am tempted to recreate this style on my own.


Avery’s was almost as easy! I cut off the existing bubble skirt, gathered the top, and stitched it to a tank. I think this is the softest dress she owns. I know it will get tons of wear.


We hit the Memphis zoo at the ideal time. The weather was perfect and the crowds were light. These bears were being super frisky with each other which was exciting to watch.


They really got up close and personal!
