Welcome to day 1 of:
I was completely stoked when Zoe of So, Zo…What do you know? challenged anyone who dared to wear at least one self-made item (be it refashioned, knitted, crocheted, or made completely from scratch) for every day of March.
I believe we should be proud of our achievements and creations. Let’s show ourselves as much as anyone else, that our efforts are more than just a pastime, that we have been slowly developing valuable skills that we can use to actually clothe ourselves, damn it! ~Zoe
I’m super excited about Me-Made March…not just for the new stuff I’m going to make this month, but also for the opportunity this gives me to show you guys some of my refashions that I never blogged about (they were either pre-blog or me being in a hurry). 🙂
Today’s dress is one I’ve had for a while, but never did a tutorial. In its “before” state it was a big ol’ house dress. Sorry for the lack of pics….I didn’t think it would turn out well, but lookie!
I actually really ended up liking this dress. It’s a nice transition piece for in between seasons, too! Today, I paired it with some bright accessories to make the blah color a bit less frumpy, and a kicky beret! 🙂
Me-Made-March Day 1…Done! Cheers!
