Meanwhile, back in the sewing studio, I'm giving this little sparkly number a make-over. Well, not so much of a make-over as a needed alteration. It was an inexpensive dress I bought a few years ago that is just a bit too short--both in the waist and the hem. I thought of adding a layer of fabric below the hem, but decided it would look more cohesive to remove the skirt and add a shimmery black elastic in the middle, which is a whole lot more work, but I brought it with me on our Thanksgiving trip and had several hours leftover after I finished the unpicking. ;) We will see if it turns out.
One more thing, my post from yesterday still has active links until the 18th. The sale isn't on any longer, but $99 for peace of mind is a pretty small price tag. My very own Circle™ is on the way and I'll do a full review once I get it in my hands and have a chance to play around with it. Make that two more things. ;) Don't forget about the $100 giveaway here. You can click through all the posts online and enter them all!!
