Day 65: The Easiest Dress Refashion Ever

Day 66: Pride Dress
Day 64: Marigold Dress & The Nana Giveaway Winner!

When I bought this dress for $1, I was really only wanting it for the fabric.  My plan is to cut it up and make it something else entirely.

It's just sliiiightly too big.

But before I do that, I’m going to show you one of the easiest no-sew dress refashions ever!  :)

First, I cut out those shoulder pads.

Ick. And Ick.

Then I buttoned the top a little more than halfway, turned it backwards, and tied the sleeves in the back, like so:

I'm a bit tied up right now...

And now I have a cute strapless maxi dress!  :)

I dig this print!

Some of you long-time followers who are super-observant might remember me doing pretty much the same thing with this dress, only with less hair, in a different apartment, and with a different kitty sidekick.  :)  I actually like today’s dress better.  ;)

Cheers!  ;)

  1. Too cute! It’s all your fault that I got involved with refashioning. Stumbled across you, loved the idea of refashioning and now I’m spending waaayy too much time with fabric.

  2. I have to agree – everything is better, the dress, the hair – although I did love Basement Kitteh. What happened to him? You are managing to do well with a lot of strapless refashions, sigh – brings back sad memories of time in the 70s when even then I was too well endowed to wear those cute triangle halter tops. Fitting these monsters is a BIG challenge – pun intended :)
