Hi again. I wore this dress before but the pictures were a little blurry. I wore this today to a meeting at FIDM. It's so comfortable and easy. Machine wash, hang dry, no wrinkles. This dress makes me understand a little bit, the love affair with polyester in the 1970's. This dress is from the early 1980's I would say. I got it at Goodwill.
Here's a little bit of a close-up of the fabric. It's got black dots on it.
I got to see some really cool things at FIDM today which I'll share with you another time. I did dress up, though, so let's see how that turned out.
The skirt was from a 1950's dress that I bought for $4.00 a while back. It was too small and shredding on top so I turned it into a skirt. I took out a piece so it wasn't so wide and bulky. The print is so cool and 50's! The lining was a leftover bit from another refashion that was a dress to an apron. Basically, since the hems were already done in the original garments, I just sewed the two skirt pieces together at the top and added elastic into a casing.

I'm really into getting more color for Summer. I'm not talking about tanning, although, if it wasn't so dangerous, it would probably be a really good idea. I mean color in my wardrobe and accessories. Most of my clothes tend to be in the neutral range, I've discovered. Have you been getting any more corals and turquoises and spearmints and such?
Just watched a great documentary on Showtime called The Other F Word. It's about Punk Rockers who are now fathers. It's touching and funny and the clothes and hair are fantastic.
I know quite a few guys who are Punk Rock Dads. That's what happens when you're "this" age. So Happy Father's Day, Punk Rock Dads!! Take the tie your kids gave you, rip it up and put it back together with safety pins.
