Quickie Victorian Shirt D.I.Y. and NDAD Book!

This past weekend the lovely Marisa Lynch (from the mind-blowing blog New Dress A Day, check it out!), came out with her first book of the same name.  I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to attend her L.A. book launch party at Book Soup.  I think I've mentioned this before, we shot a pilot together a couple months back and I think she's one of the most talented crafters ever.  So of course I wanted to show up at the signing in style! But I also wanted to honor the NDAD ethos.  Luckily, I had just the thing...I had bought this beauty at a thrift store a couple months back, and wore it as is, but found it a little constricting around the armpits.  Simple solution, I cut off the arm right under the ruffle, leaving the seams in tact, and voila, a new shirt for the day!

Snip, snip.

Bye bye!  The ruffle hid the raw edge so I didn't worry about it.

Yay for the book!  What an accomplishment.

With John, who shot the pilot with us, and his lovely wife Rebecca.
