Cheaters Never Win (But they look darn cute!)--Day 16

So I know I've been kinda MIA on the posts. Mostly that's because by the time I get home, work has taken it's toil on my outfits. Today for example, my coffee spilled on my dress twice while I was driving. Which is totally work's fault, because, who can work uncaffeinated?

I have been working on some projects, though. I am still going strong on the not shopping, although I did plunk down $1.94 for elastic to finish a skirt. (I already had the fabric purchased and cut out prior to the challenge beginning.) I'll be debuting that some time this week.

I also had bought this scarf a while ago at Target. It's from the Liberty of London line. And it's ginormous. (And actually, I just realized Target/Liberty call it a pareo. Oh.)

Now, you may not know this from my pictures so far, but I love a good scarf. Or even a bad one. They're totally a staple. But when they're TOO big, they remind me more of a tablecloth. And I don't know what to do with that. Until now.

I saw this dress on Wardrobes and Whimsy and was totally inspired. This scarf is about to be amazingly transformed into a DRESS!

I'll keep you posted on the results...

(73/90 to go!)

I too, am a big lover of scarves. I can never ever resist a pretty one.

Can't wait to see the dress version. I bet it's going to be awesome.
