suggestions; part 2

I recently inherited a dress that my grandmother wore to a wedding in 1978.  The sweet polyester 70's syle gem needed a facelift, and I decided to give it one. As some of you may have seen, I botched the facelift completely (see this post).  So, after thinking about how to restore my botching, I came up with this....

**notice the uneven stripes around the cowl neck, not to mention to stray paint that is tucked away in the folds of the cowl neck**

So, without getting too worked up about my mistakes, I decided to find another creative way to wear my giant mistake of a redo.  



I'd say I am done trying to repair these mistakes- it's only getting worse!
It wasn't at all what I wanted when I began this project, but I'd say this fall when things cool down a bit, I may pull this little number together and it'll be just great.  

Maybe a little life lesson tucked away in the folds of this cowl-neck-mistake-dress? Ha!
