Teal cocktail dress, for play and work


I wore this refashioned teal satin-and-chiffon cocktail dress to a wedding reception on Saturday night after wearing a more ladylike grey dress to the wedding.  A Catholic wedding.  Lots of stand up, sit down, stand up, kneel if you’re Catholic and if not sit down again,…  The reception, in contrast, had a Patron tequila fountain with two flavors of slushie machines for make-your-own margaritas.

Thanks to lack of coordination with the self-timer multi-shot  function, I ended up with three angles of the dress.  No, I’m not pregnant, just kinda fat in the lower stomach (“baby bump”) zone.

To make the dress presentable, I shortened the straps, tightened the bodice, and lopped off a good bit of skirt.
