What I've been up to today.....

The other day I went thrifting with the little ones to pass some time and I found a dress. A dress that I wasn't sure if I liked, but ended up getting it anyways. I figured if I didn't like it as a dress then I could just use the material for something else. I bought it and brought it home only to find it fit perfectly everywhere but my "girls". At first I was pretty bummed but I hung it up on my curtain rod so I could think about what I could do to make it fit. I finally decided to turn it into a tank dress and that's what I've been doing this morning. I am so in love with how it turned out and I can't wait to find another dress to do the same with.

What I did--- First I cut the top off, then sewed the tank on (it was a useless tank that I had bought last summer and it was shorter than I like), I chopped off about 5 or so inches in the length and hemmed the skirt. I also added fabric flowers made out of the fabric I cut from the bottom. 

Oh and I just realized the before pic is the back of the dress, but you get the general idea. :)


Total cost of this tank dress -- $8.50, you can't beat that can you?

Now I'm off to do my last assignment for the semester and study for a final! Happy Wednesday!!

Love & Robots,

Before I read that the before is the back of the dress I thought there is no way that is the same dress lol, but I love it. You are seriously so talented in many different ways Im jealous. I wrote you on FB about the CP stuff.
