I think you know by now my love for thrifting and DIY. Well, this weekend I joined both of my favorite pastimes in making my new summer staple…the DIY Dress.
I was browsing Goodwill looking for a dress I could try altering. I haven’t done altering before so I needed a really simple project to ease myself into. The sun must have been shining on me that day because I found the perfect one.
The tag said $7.99 and I was more than pleased with that price, but when I got the register I almost jumped back when the lady checking me out said, “That will be 99 cents.”
Frumpy? Yes. There was no shape to this dress when you put it on. Just a giant triangle.
Awkward length? Yes. It hit right between my knees and ankles.
But there was definite potential.
All I needed to do was shorten it, hem it and add a belt at the waist to create a shape.
I’m probably going to be wearing this ALL summer long. Bring on the sun!
