Rachel’s Reader ReFash!

As promised, I’m bringing you this week’s Reader ReFash!  This is your chance to show off those awesome redos you’ve been rocking!  :)

This week’s installment comes from Rachel, from Probably Rachel!  I would think she is most definitely Rachel, yet her blog title leads me to distrust her.  Hmmmmnnnn….

Anywho…she began with this $3 thrifted dress right here:

I've gotta hand it to her, I'm loving the purple/teal combo!

But then she turned it into this gorgeous sun dress for a friend’s bridal shower!

Le front!

Le back!

Le back!

You can check out how she did this awesome refash right here!  She gives really good instructions to help you recreate the look!

This was my first complicated refashion, I typical stick to simpler things like making long pants into capris or making a regular sweater into a cardigan, so I’m really proud of how it turned out.

Keep it up, Rachel!  You have the knack!  :)

And for those of you out there with a hankering to share YOUR refashions, email ‘em to me at refashblog@gmail.com (you can check out a few guidelines for submissions here).  :)

Cheers!
