Seeing Princess get so excited to see the Pacific Symphony at Segerstrom Hall, it was hard for me to say no when she asked if I would make her something new to wear especially since it’s one of the few days the kids are allowed to break out of their usual red and navy school uniform to “dress up” for the occasion.
Luckily, when she and I say “new”, we both mean “making something new out of something old”. After digging through my (too) large pile of thrift stores finds, she picked out this great vintage women’s dress I scored at our local thrift shop for only $4 with the hopes I could “make it smaller.” And that’s exactly what I was doing at 10pm the night before the concert.
I finished it just in time for the concert which from what I was told, was “totally awesome” because “Aaron Copland rocks.”

Luckily that gorgeous roll collar fit (loose but) fine and I didn’t have to touch it!
