T-Shirt + Fabric = Adorable Girls’ Summer Maxi Dress!

Melissa’s “little fashionista” asked for a certain kind of summer dress, and Melissa delivered. What’s even better for us is that she shared how to make it. You can upcycle an old t-shirt and some cool fabric (she used voile) … and follow the directions for an amazing summer maxi dress!

Raise a Dress Hem And Go From Drab to Fab!

Katherine found this cute railroad print dress at a thrift store for $5.99 — but its nearly-to-the-floor hem made it look dowdy. She simply lifted the them, and bingo, this thrift store find went from drab to fab. We love the simple makeover of just raising a hem — it helped us see thrift store finds in a new light!

Blue Linen Dress Refashion

Linen is a great fabric, and this crisp navy linen holds a lot of promise. But the original cut is dated. Autumn took apart the dress, shortened it and updated the cut. Her step by step how-to is a great example of updating a dated cut. And pairing it with a dollar store belt? Priceless!
