I probably shouldn’t even be doing this, but I had to get out of bed for a minute 🙂 My little one had a stomach bug on Sunday and I was the recipient of it last night. All night long. My wonderful hubby stayed home to watch the little one for me. I haven’t thrown up since I was pregnant and I hate it. Not fun.
Onto what this post is really about. Last Friday night, I attended a semi-formal Coast Guard dinner/event with my husband. My husband was a new chief’s sea lawyer for the the Chief’s initiation (it’s a lot like college stuff in my opinion, lol). So we attended the last and final event which was honoring about 10 new Coast Guard Chiefs.
I found a dress I loved, but it needed some work. I made a belt for it using this tutorial. The only thing I did different was I sewed them onto the end of the ribbon and just safety pinned it together. I didn’t want the ribbon hanging. I dyed a sweater I had so I wouldn’t have to go out and buy a new one (it was very dull looking).
Then I hand sewed some ruffles to the neckline for some modesty. I absolutely adore how it came out.
And I leave you with this candid shot. The background was falling and my daughter was eating dirt. Oh the joys of it all 🙂
