Summer is the time to dress “cooler” I love this refashion of taking something that doesn’t work for the season and might not be your style and transforming it to work! This lined dress gets a makeover and goes from plain to TRENDY!

How to Downsize a Striped Dress

I’ve seen these sort of baggy dresses at the thrift store but never thought that they could so easily be altered! I thought you’d need to do something special, but you really just mark, trim, cut and sew. You won’t believe how easy it really is (and you can do it with a regular sewing machine!). Check out another Cotton & Curls watch refashion that we featured here.

Men’s Shirt to Toddler Dress Refashion

What do you do when you have a man’s shirt but are in need of a toddler dress? Of course you refashion it! I love the little accents with the patch, the yellow buttons and the tie in the back. It’s even more darling seeing the toddler wearing it, so visit the post below to see more pictures.

Old Wedding Dress to Maxi Skirt

I have seen quite a few old, lace dresses at the thrift store, but I have no idea what to do with them. I think the vintage lace is so pretty, but wearing it as a dress seems silly. So this is a great idea – turn it into a maxi skirt! They are popular right now, so why not? Visit the link below for the tutorial.

A Girls’ Dress From Three Shirts

Can you believe how sweet this jersey dress is? Pam refashioned three t-shirts into a little girl’s dress, and there are so many cute details. The panels in the skirt are so cute – and who doesn’t love a little flower at the waist! I love this idea, and it would be fun to make another sassy version out of t-shirts with print on them.

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.

Little Girls’ Shirt Dress

Girls' dress refashion

I tried shirring (sewing with elastic thread) one time on my little Kenmore Mini Ultra sewing machine, and it was a bust. The poor little machine just couldn’t handle it! But I could tell that if it had worked, it would have been cool. And this little dress made from a man’s shirt solidifies that. It’s so darling, and perfect for summer, which is close around the corner. The tutorial is easy to follow, and if you’ve never tried shirring, it’s easier than it looks (just use the right machine!).

$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!
