~Five Minute Dress Makeover~
This dress looked super cute in the thrift store. Once I tried it on it was super frumpy! It has a blousy top (hate those) and the length was all wrong (+ the bottom half of the skirt is too cute to simply cut short).
In the changeroom I found the hem was easily brought up with a belt so decided to fork over the $5. Once home I made the look complete with accessories and now I am sure this dress will get much use. By next season I will most likely cut off the top half, sew it up and work with it as a long skirt/tube dress. I am so in love with it!! 2nd pic is clickable for more details. 😉
