Hubby alters a dress

I've learned something this weekend:  I am a craft planner and hubby is a craft doer.  I have tons of ideas about what I want to make or how I can upcycle thrifted items.  However, I only try out about 10% of my ideas because I get stuck in the planning stage.  My poor ideas end up sitting in idea purgatory.  Hubby, on the other hand, takes only a couple of moments to plan and then he just dives in.  A few hours later, he's done and onto the next thing.

I'm fortunate to be married to someone like that.  I admire his "can-do-what-the-heck-I-will-do" attitude.  Whether he succeeds or fails, he inevitably learns something in the process.  I also rely on him to help bring my craft ideas to life.  For example, he helped me hem a pair of polka dot shorts.

This weekend, hubby helped me resize and hem a thrifted dress.  The dress was initially a couple sizes too large, but I purchased it anyway because I saw potential.  This weekend hubby finally tackled the challenge.  He pinned and sewed and after an hour my dress transformed from frumpy to fitted. 

 I was ecstatic. 



Note: As you can see from the background... we've been delinquent about packing.... eek!

    1. Hee hee. Put your order in. My mom already requested some hemming for pants. Right now he's sewing a pillow for our new crazy white chair. :)
