DIY Striped Dress Refashion

Sometimes the clothes we have just need a little “umph” or help. This dress in her closet from the nineties totally gets brought into trend with a little shave here and there from the sewing machine! Love that it’s knit too and that makes it comfy to wear!

Amazing Prom Dress Upcycle

This is one of my favorite refashions ever – not just because it’s cool, but because it was done by a teenager! It’s so fun that she bought her own dress from the vintage shop and then altered it to be the beautiful prom dress you see on the right. She makes it sounds easy – visit the blog to read about how it was done.

Frumpy Dress to Swimsuit Cover Up

I was so not inspired by the dress on the left – and I would go to the store to buy the swimsuit cover up on the right! I’m impressed that Carrie was able to see the potential in this dress, and I agree that the pattern is fantastic. Can you make a ruffle? It’s not as hard as it looks. Learn how it came together below.

Drab to Fab Jumper

This saucy little number used to be a frumpy and unflattering frock. Katherine got it from the thrift store for 6 bucks, and it was definitely in need of a makeover! I would have had the foresight to realize that it could be such cute little jumper, but she did, and I love the finished, fun look.

$3 Frumpy Dress Becomes a Stunner

This transformation reminds me that I don’t look at the clearance rack at Target (my favorite store) nearly enough. What started out as a shapeless swim coverup was converted into a ruched dress with beautiful trim. I’m so impressed with Kate’s skills, and it’s easier than it looks!
