The thing I really like about the completely blah and shapeless polyester dresses I find for $1 at thrift stores…
…is what wonderful blank slates they are! You can really do just about anything with them! :)
I decided to go for a quick, but dramatic no-sew refashion for this one!
First, I trimmed off that bottom hem to make my sash.
Then, I folded the dress in half and made a big asymmetrical cut!
Those sleeves needed a bit of a shortening, too!
And that’s it! Now that dress is totally transformed!
I wore my dress to Finlay Park for a production of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged). I was especially excited, as I was asked to review the show for Jasper Magazine and Onstage Columbia! :)
There I was…poised with pen in hand, ready to take notes!
Erin and I were really optimistic…
…and then it started to rain. Hard. :/
So…the show was called off. Such a bummer! Luckily, I’ll be able to catch it/review it on what will hopefully be a bright & sunny Saturday! Fingers crossed! I’ll be sure to post the link to my review when it’s released. :)
