|Horrible fused gum blob/mess.|
I was pretty sad as she had only worn this new dress of hers once. While carrying it to the trash I was contemplating another sewing project and got the idea to salvage this one by chopping the top off and making a skirt since the gum only effected the top of the otherwise salvageable dress. So I went ahead and cut off the damaged shirt portion leaving enough to create a new waist line hem and leave some of the purple and black striped fabric. I then salvaged the tulle rose from the top have of the garment, tossed the top, pinned and proceeded with my salvage job.

|Right before I sewed it up, sewed the flower on and tacked it to fit my skinny kids waist.|
