I have been scouring stores - thrift and regular - for the perfect denim dress litterally ALL summer long.. And, when I was giving up on all hope to meet my match, a potential contestant presented itself.. Hello I thought, I could transform you into exactly what I want! And so I did! And then I accessorized.
Above is the dress before transformation. I added elastics to the side-backs to make it slightly more fitted at the waist, shortened and tapered the hem.. and voila!
P.S This is a lesson that many of you probably already know, when thrift shopping you really have to have an open mind about the garments and try to imagine what can be done and how it would look.. maybe it helps to have knowledge in pattern making and fashion design but most of the time all the garments need is to be shortened.
