After you hear what I've done, I may lose all my blogging friends! This was a one-piece Land's End turtleneck dress with an elastic waistband. Thrifted, of course. I could see that it was not going to get a second wear in its existing state.
So today while listening to the Webinar I have been "attending" all week, I took a scissors to it! I cut it just above the elastic waistband, leaving myself an instant skirt. I evened off the bottom of the top and trimmed off the turtleneck collar - and voila! A casual two-piece outfit!
I wore it the rest of the day with brown tights, a dark amber necklace (strung double) and several amber-colored bangle bracelets. I was pretty pleased with myself.
Pretty daring for an old lady, huh? Have YOU ever done anything so odd as this?
