A Birthday Refash

Last Saturday was my Birthday! The husband and our friends were taking me out for dinner and drinks to celebrate!

Since it was my Birthday I figured what better way to celebrate then wearing my favorite color: PINK!

 
Ohh la la!

The original buttons on my dress were gold. Now, don't get me wrong I like gold, but since this rehash is all about pink I decided to change the buttons...

I switched over to these pink buttons. Like how subtle the pink buttons on the pink fabric are!

Next, it was time to get rid of those ridiculous shoulder pads!

I shortened the sleeves by 1 1/2 inches.

I went to shorten the hem length and I noticed this: someone had already done that. (I can't even imagine how long the original length was).

Shortened the hem  by 2 inches.

Time to celebrate! They even decorated the house for me! What a surprise!

 
My bestie made me pink cupcakes!


The husband bought me a embroidery/sewing machine! Stay tuned for some more awesomeness in refashioning!!!

 
The Happy Birthday girl!


What a great bunch! :)



Happy Refashioning!!!

Great refashion, and happy belated birthday! Your husband is awesome because my husband gave me the same sewing and embroidering machine for Christmas last year. And I absolutely love it! I don't use the embroidery feature as much as I want, but I love love love my sewing machine. Have fun!
