I took the dress I got off of ebay and cut along the dotted (trimmed) lines and shortened the underlying layers and it became:
which is just the cutest dress I've seen in a while. It's really itchy and I can't stand to be in it for more than 5 minutes, but I'm working on that. The sides come up on both sides to reveal the under layers. I think the under layers can be shortened just a tad still. I think this will work for my #2 dress. That sounds ridiculous, but when you see the beautiful dress Sarah is making me, you'll see why I want an option to get crazy in later (to avoid ruining the beauty that is my #1). Think of it as my white wedding suit!
That's all for now. I still want to show you the special items we found while enjoying our trip through oldsville weekend before last. Please excuse the cheeky smile...I'm trying to smile more!
You know it,
