Frumpy Dress Refashion
Well, Larissa, you twisted my arm. Here's another post for the day!
Another "refashion", or as I sometimes like to call them, "Ta-da! projects".....
I bought this dress for $1 at a thrift store the other day because I wanted the brown velvet to make Paige something. But then I thought "hey, why not make something for yourself for once?". So here it is:
Ta-da! After!I could have cropped the teddy bear out of that picture, but it appealed to my sense of humor. :o)
Here is a back view. There are buttons all the way down, but you can't really see them.
Awwww! You look gorgeous in it!! Perfect for Fall! I love your blog the most!!ReplyDelete
You are amazing! I want to spend some time with you and have some of that creativity rub off on me. Hmmm. How can I work that out? I'm thinking of a plan...ReplyDelete
I would absolutely die of happiness if you ever came to visit! We have a whole separate floor for guests to stay in! I know that's a long trip for the girls though. That's when you start thinking about those DVD players that people have in their cars! :o)ReplyDelete
You so look like Angelina Jolie in these pics! Totally something she would wear! BeautifulReplyDelete
I can't believe you made that beautiful dress from that frumpy one!!! Awesome! Talented!!!ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness, you are so brilliant. I just extended the life of one of my daughters dresses. You are such an inspiration. I see many more ruffles in my future.ReplyDelete
I LOVE it!!! I have never really sewn before, but I have decided to learn and this is JUST what I was looking for! I want to find thrift store pieces and fix them up. How on earth did you do this???? I would LOVE a tutorial on one of your ta-da pieces!!ReplyDelete
It is a charming dress, indeed! :)ReplyDelete
Oh this is beautiful! You have such a nice silhouette.ReplyDelete
I love the back of this dress! It's beautiful and alluring without breaking with my conservative dressing habits. Truly an amazing job.ReplyDelete
