Sometimes simple is just better….
Found this dress in the thrift store on Fifty Cent Wednesday. Thought with a few changes it might be nice for a Friday night dinner at a friend’s house.
Once again, nice fabric but shapeless and too long. The neckline was too low for me so I put a brown shirt underneath for pictures. I planned on taking out the middle and resewing like I did with the 1960’s Mad Men Inspired Dress Refashion and the Accidental Mother of the Bride Dress. But, as I was marking how much to take out and looking in the mirror, I had a handful bunched up on the side and, oh my gosh, it looked pretty good that way. So I grabbed a hairband, wrapped it around the handful of fabric, lowered the t shirt sleeves from underneath the dress and wha-la! A whole new look for the dress. So easy peasy, even my sister, Jan could do it. 🙂
Here’s the how to video:
Now I’m ready for dinner…
