Hi! It’s Wannabe Wednesday…trust me. It just is, okay? :)
I’ve been coveting this funky dress from Urban Outfitters:
Ain’t it rad? The print is great, it looks uber-comfy, the knots are nifty, and I want one for spring! :)
Buuuuut…98 bucks could buy a LOT of wine (priorities!), so I’d rather make a quick copycat from a $1 thrift like this:
The print isn’t even close to the original, but the idea is the same. They’re both sort of a funky “tribal” look, so it’s close enough for my purposes.
This refashion is a no-sew! All I had to do was make one big cut.
I left the bottom edge raw, but I didn’t want it to go fray-crazy, so I applied this to the edge:
After the fray-check dried, I made a couple of knots…
And just like that, my copycat is complete! :)
Of course, it’s still a bit chilly out, so I had to winterize it a bit!
I wore my new dress out for a couple of drinks with friends…
