When I woke up yesterday, I had an unshakeable urge to do a quick refash!
This is a maxi dress. It’s not terrible. I’m sure there are worse maxi dresses in the world. I actually wore this dress as-is a few times after scoring it for $1. It was one of those, “Eh…it’ll do for work, I guess…if I put a cardigan over it.” pieces. But that’s lame. Why should I settle for a lackluster frock from 9-5?
I made a couple of cuts.
I took the top cut-off part and cut a little more…
…then I yanked on those fringy things so the fabric would curl, like so:
Then, I wrapped this sash-thing around my waist twice, knotting the top fringy things together and the bottom fringy things together in two separate knots.
I think this no-sew refashion is pretty swell!
Do you like those paintings next to me? They’re by none other than the charming Michael Krajewski! He opened his studio to the public for Main Street’s monthly First Thursdays on Main art crawl! 🙂
I ran into some rather cool kids while checking out his new work. 😉
I didn’t get to spend as much time at First Thursday as I would’ve liked, as I had to make a mad dash to Finlay Park to check out SC Shakespeare Company’s production of Shakespeare’s Cymbaline! As this is hardly ever produced, I was really excited to catch this rarity. 🙂
It’s a very good production, and you should catch it if you can. I’ll post the link to my review here just as soon as it’s published. 🙂
Erin was nice enough to lend me a sweater, as the night was quite chilly. Luckily, the wine we brought kept us warm! 🙂
