I have an insanely over active imagination. Personally I love it- it’s like everything in the universe is trying to tell me a story- including the dresses. As many of you know by now- I like to have fun with the before looks and since I was already working on a neurotic teacher character for a short film I shot last night- I had some fun creating a love-lorn bookworm named Samantha Spektor- as the character I imagined this dress to be before she got a makeover. So I busted out my trusty tripod and imagined what she would be like if she was trying to create a profile for the newest online dating site: “1-2-3-date” I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed making it.
Now… on to the make-over. This was another simple shortening job much like my Thanksgiving Redux. I opted to make this a touch longer as well as double rolling the hem. and I also took the top and middle in just a tad…
You can check out my Thanksgiving post on the most simple way to mark your hem. I marked a couple of inches under my finger tips and then, since this was a less full skirt, just folded on half, pinned across and cut off the excess length.
Once this was done I simply ironed down a small section…
So now it’s all done and ready to go. I think we can all agree that Samantha has come a long way from the neurotic book worm we first met on 1-2-3-Date!
What stories do your dresses tell you?
Love and Thrift,
