I’m LOVING all of the terrific Reader ReFashes you guys have been sending in! This week’s comes from Ashley in Philly (Hey! I was just there!).
She began with this ho-hum dress right here:
I found this dress at a thrift store for around 3 dollars. I took in the sides and took off some length, chopped off the sleeves, turned the dress around so the buttons are in the back, and cut the neckline down a bit. The after picture is taken next to the Delaware River in New Hope, PA. I got two compliments on the dress from total strangers, which totally made my day!
Look at that dress now!
I like how she mentions getting compliments from strangers about her refashion. That’s one of the BEST feelings…having others appreciate something that you created! And instead of saying, “Thanks! I got it at *insert boring store name here*”, you get to say, “Thanks! I made it out of something else!”
Which response would you rather give? Which response sounds like a fun conversation starter? I rest my case. :)
Cheers! Keep those awesome refashes coming! :)
