The “Bored to Death” Skirt
During a movie night with my high school girls we all brought clothes along so we could play “dress up”. I remember telling the girls that I did not like polka dots. Several weeks later I found a dress at a thrift store that was sheer with cute sleeves and and some beautiful draping along the bottom which hit mid calf. It was black with small white polka dots. My thinking was that I should give them a try-I may like it. I wore it a couple of times and decided that I don’t mind them so much but they’re still not my favorite.
I don’t like this skirt. I like feminine with an edge or at least some sex appeal this is so plain and…..not exciting. Vanilla. I know that some of you may like this so I want you to know that it’s a fine skirt it’s just not my style. It would look way better on you I’m sure.
Lucky for me I wasted no money on this. It’s a dress someone gave me that didn’t fit. I separated the bodice from the skirt, chopped off about 4 or 5 inches, and added a waistband using fabric from my stash. I kept the zipper in and just shortened the length.
There really isn’t anything else to say about it. I promised to give you polka dots and I did.
