The Forgotten Thrifted Dress

I got this dress at a thrift store last summer. I got home, tried it on and hated the big fat stripes.I put it in the laundry and found a place for it at the back of my closet. Fast forward...it's July 2011, i am cleaning out my closet and i find the dress.I grab my scissors, needle & thread and this is what i came up with.

Welcome to my dark side...lol

Is one allowed to make a not so positive comment?

The length of the dress before the cut was fantastic! it had a circle skirt bottom and you cut it off! :-(

However in cutting it off it still looks nice! well done

Shanequa said...

Awesome job!!! You've inspired me to go ahead and tackle some items in my closet. They've been needing a little Singer love..

TeTe said...

Love it... I think I may be the only one who like its more as a top rather than a dress... Loved how you styled it as well.
