A few months ago, I spotted an amazing tutorial over at Welcome to the gOOd life. In it, Sarah shows you how to make a gorgeous pleated dress out of a boring old white pleated skirt. I’ve been wanting to try this for ages, but never found the perfect skirt…until now!
Seriously. Go over to Sarah’s beautiful blog right now. I promise you’re going to want to follow this tutorial, too! 🙂
So…how did my version turn out? Not too shabby!
It was a tad chilly out, so I tossed on a cozy sweater with it. 🙂
I’ve gotta admit, Sarah’s version is even prettier. When I do this again (and I will definitely be doing this again!) , I’m going to leave my sleeves/flappy things longer like Sarah’s.
I’m not the only refashionista who loved Sarah’s awesome dress. Christina over at Refashion Statement has a really lovely plaid version that looks fab too! 🙂
I have serious photography envy over both of these blogs. They’re both just absolutely gorgeous (have you looked at them yet?). Thanks for being kind and patient with me and my cheapie little cameras that keep breaking, and are occasionally blurry, but try really hard! 🙂
I wore my pretty new pleated dress to a fundraiser for Harvest Hope, where I hung out with my good buddy, Phillip. 🙂
