Paris, je t'aime. The Reveal!

Finished it! 'member? from here?
My version of Shabby Apple's Oh La La dress.

I'm fairly happy with how it turned out. Now if only I could go pose in the Jardin du Luxembourg...

This was SO simple. All I did was whack the skirt bit off of the dress. Then I used my trusty little zigzag stitch (and a ball point needle) to sew it onto the t shirt. Same deal with the sleeves. I could have left the little cap sleeves but part of the reason that shirt was in the "yah. I'm ok with this being refashioned" pile was it's tiny sleevies, they didn't love my chubby armies back.

Also, as soon as I put on my scarily red lipstick Teddy did a classic double take and said "MUMMY LIPS NIIICE". Huh. Maybe time to wear a little more make-up.


  1. Love it! You look absolutely fabulous in this creation!

  2. Love it! It looks great, well done!

  3. so cute! I found your dress from wardrobe refashion, I love the shabby apple dress too and had the exact same reaction - such teases to photograph a lovely dress in an even lovelier setting! I must go to Paris now (sigh). nicely done!

  4. TCFW!! Too Cute for Words! Wow - it looks absolutely fab on you!

  5. Aren't little boys silly? I slapped some makeup on the other day and my 2.5-yr-old son said, "Oh, Mommy, your face is pretty!" Maybe I should take a hint...

    I'm loving this dress! I'm going to have to attempt one of my own, but with a button-down shirt instead of a t-shirt due to the need of nursing access.

  6. I think you did a fantastic job on this!

  7. oooh it looks excellent! =)
    well done!

  8. Well done sweetie, great dress and don't you look trim and svelte.



  9. This looks great! I have a purple stripe. Maybe I'll go find something to match my shirt and hack it :)
