Costume conversions: A wedding season saga

Ah, wedding season.  Currently we are right in the midst of infinite countdowns to the “big day”—sleepless nights of sipping crazy fruit and rum concoctions through phallic straws while gifting certain, um, “toys” to the bride-to-be (even though we all know the bride will be the last one in her wedding party to need such toys for she is the one getting married!). These are the days when all of us loving sisters spend copious amounts of money on shoes to compliment gaudy dresses we will only wear once on that “big day”—in reality, they aren’t the shoes we actually want to purchase!

I am not "poo-pooing" nor being a sourpuss about being asked to stand up in my friends’ weddings.  Quite the contrary, it is simply “the costumes” that come with such a blessing I have a problem with.  How many of us ladies have a portion of our closets dedicated to special occasions clothing? In this section are dresses that were worn only once and then, almost as ceremoniously as the wedding itself, were hung in their plastic sheeting to never again feel the softness of your skin or hear a wedding band’s cover of “Celebration.”  We spend all that time, effort and dividends for multiple useless and space-sucking costumes, (and “costumes” are truly what they are)—what a shame! The fabric is all beautiful, it is just that we don’t really want to look like we are going to our senior prom when we are simply attending a dinner party on the terrace. Well, Blueprint has just the article to help us turn these dust-collecting, space-gobbling costumes to pieces of modern desire.  Ladies, it’s time to get crafty.
