I have been reading a blog called New Dress A Day for a while now. It's very inspiring because A. cash is low for new clothes and B. I hate the styles/colors/fabrics at the stores right now.
I decided to try my own makeover of a thrift store dress. Saturday the local thrift had a 40% off sale, so I got this for $4.60.
Awful, isn't it? Not flattering in the least... Even the camera was disgusted - it didn't even take a good picture!! ;)
So, after thinking about what I wanted to do with it, I decided to turn it into a tunic. I cut off some length, and those awful sleeves. After hemming, here's what it looks like now:
Much better! I love the flutter sleeves! It gives me a whole new silhouette! (of course, it would help if it wasn't laundry day, and I have on some pants that are too baggy..)
I can't wait to hit the thrift stores again... Unfortunately, the local ones here are all so pricey.. I see a trip to Ventura in my future... :)
P.S. I haven't forgotten about finishing up our vacation... I have just a couple of days to go....
