Prom Dress 2008

I was a day late and a dollar short when it came to deciding what to wear to the company Christmas party this year. Oh sure, I have a closet full of elaborate dresses. What girl doesn’t? But unfortunately quite a few of them had allready been pressed into service over the past 9 years. And I was too lazy and far too short on time to whip something together.

What did that mean exactly? That meant I reached into the magic closet of dress up and pulled out something rather old. I’m not sure the exact history of the dress I wore this year, but it came to me from Chad’s grandmother’s house. I had the same issue with his grandmother’s dress as I did with my Nun-nun’s dress last year. Man, our grandma’s were tiny. WAY tiny.

Borrowing from last year’s lesson, I took out the side zipper on the dress and stitched that seam up. I then cut the center and put in a placket & eyelets so the dress could be laced up. Voila! Perfect fit.
