Week 3: Wishful Thinking

Although I love the cold weather, I do wish now could be spring!  I’m preparing plantings and looking at all the seed packets with all the beautiful colors.  I keep thinking of all the pretty dresses I want to wear this year since I’m not bedridden or wheelchair bound this year!  (Knock on wood!!!)

I am drawn to a different color every year.  I don’t know why.  I just am.  This year I can’t stop thinking about the color of most of the pansies that I am seeing all over the place.  I wish I had some!  I never thought of myself as a purple kinda gal, but this year I just can’t seem to get enough of it!

Week 3

This week I captured a bit of that in this dress.  I know I should’ve had a better shot, but I was so busy goofing off in it that almost all the pictures came out blurry.  I like the dress.  I do need to tighten under the arms a bit, but otherwise I am very happy with it!  Smile  Sorry, no previous picture.  It was just a plain broom skirt.  Isn’t the umpire waist awesome?

I bought some red dye, too.  I probably should have done a purple project during the Amethyst month and a red project during the Garnet month.  Oh well!  Smile

Thats a great colour and you've turned a simple skirt into a fantastic dress :)... the belt goes so well with it.

That is stunning!!! (my auto spell on my phone tried to make that "stinking", glad I caught that, lol!) You look amazing! Standing ovation!

Thanks so much! I love the belt with it, too. It is a difficult belt to put on because of all the eyelets getting caught on the hoops, but for this dress, the struggle was worth it! :)

Glad you caught that, too. LOL It actually smells like my Vanilla Lace body spray. What can I say, I was in girly mode! LOL ;)

Hi! I also love purple, and just wanted to share that I like what you did with the dress! <3 We share the same passion, but here in the Philippines, discount clothing stores are called "ukay-ukay." Visit my site: to see my own "transformations". God bless!

Like what you see? Let us know! :)
