Week One--Let the Game Begin

Two hours searching second hand stores with two little kids...there are many words that come to mind. Miss K found a pair of high heels that she proceeded to wear for the entire duration of the mission. Baby A pulled numerous garments from hangers (um, sorry about all those broken hangers) and piled them on himself until he resembled Mount Clothesmore. Just as I was beginning to feel I wasn't going to have any luck today, because not just anything would do for the first "transformation", I came across this beauty:
Not only does it have a matching belt (and by matching I mean the EXACT same material), it has elastic in the know, because there is nothing more attractive than a poochey top and lots of gathers around a plus-sized middle. It is a pretty basic dress design, lending itself well to this project. You bet your buttons I can do this!


  1. OMG girl that is a piece of work. I can't wait to see what you do with it!

  2. Ha ha - Mount Clothesmore! I call the giant pile of dirty clothes in the laundry room Mount Washmore!
