May 29, 2012 in Glam: Style & Trends
Let me be the first to admit that, well…I don’t really know how to sew. Sure I can read the small font in the manual, figure-out how to thread a needle and sew a straight line or two on cloth, but I am a bit behind when it comes to changing-up my wardrobe all on my own account. You too? With all these creative juices flowing, we need an outlet…a cheap outlet, that won’t penalize us for our beauty blunders.
The solution? Thrift store finds. I headed to my closest Goodwill store and for a mere $3, a fun hour of designing, and a spool of thread, I re-vamped a threadbare thrift to a darling dress. Take a look!
DIY TIP: The original dress didn’t quite make the fit and wasn’t flattering to my figure. When DIY at home, note your features you want to highlight…long legs, strong arms…etc. It’s your dress!
Let’s see what we can do here…
Design Notes: Because I wanted a revealing back, I lifted the dress for more coverage. This simple alternation squared the top and lifted the dress resulting in a more romantic and updated look.
Feel free to send in your own DIY designs or share your best thrift store find story! Good luck!
