Day 219: Life of the Party Dress

Day 220: Giants Dress
Day 218: to Bea or Not to Bea Dress

I don’t care if this piece was originally really expensive and on-trend.  It looks ridiculous!

What the What?!???

Not only is this jumpsuit one of the dumbest-looking things I’ve seen, it also had a mangled zipper.

Never been worn!

There’s an extremely expensive boutique here in Columbia that donates their damaged stuff to Revente’s Last Call.  Kudos to them for not just destroying the stuff.  :)

Anywho…I needed this jumpsuit to be a sexy party dress STAT!  Time was of the essence!  I made a nice, big chop!

Off with your legs!

Then, I put my new dress on my dress form.  I fitted it on the side where the broken zipper was.  Technically, I should have just put in a new zipper, but alas!  I was already running late to a really fun party!  :)

Pinned!

When doing this, I had to be careful.  If I made the dress too fitted, I wouldn’t be able to get in or out of it.  I had to get it just right.   Luckily, I’m pretty bendy and can wriggle my way into just about anything (thank you yoga!)!  :)  I ran the pinned side through my machine, and cut off the excess material, completely removing the broken zipper.

I made a quickie sash from one of the discarded legs, and was ready to go!  :)

Time to party! :)

I think this dress is a huge improvement over that silly jumpsuit!  :)

Oh…and check out my daring footwear!

This could get dangerous!

I really have to admit…I have some extremely fun friends!  :)

The Charming Host! :)
Yes...he has a ball pit in his living room. Jealous much?

  1. Really quite like that… looks good on you! Did you get my little weird parcel from Australia btw? Have you hidden it under the bed in the hope you’ll never find it again!?!?

  2. I absolutely adore your blog! You’re so talented. You’ve definitely inspired me to give items a second look at the thrift store :)

  3. This has to be my favorite dress that I’ve seen refashed! And I absolutely LOVE purple – it’s my favorite color!! :)
