A No-Sew Thrift Store Dress Upcycle

From 90's Merp to 60's Mod Dress Refashion
A Splurge or A Steal?

Alright all…when I began this year, I started with a most noble goal of writing a post every day.

I don’t know what else to say, except that wasn’t realistic.

It just wasn’t.

“But wait! You did a refashion every day for a year four years ago! Why can’t you do it again?”, you may be wondering.

There are pllllllenty of reasons. My day job is more demanding. I have other interests (like cooking) that I want to explore. I miss reading. I travel a lot. Writing every day made it hard to actually sew anymore.

Most importantly, I felt I was losing the joy of this blog by trying to make myself post every day, and then feeling guilty when I had to take work home at night or wanted to make a good meal.

So…I’m done beating myself up with trying to post on the daily. :/

However, the blog shall go on, and I’ll post whenever I can. ๐Ÿ™‚

Let’s start with this $1 thrift store dress:

Fresh out of the shower with a new frock!

This one has been on the Refashion rack for a long time! I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with it until the other morning.

First, I chopped off a big chunk of that bottom hem!

Then I chopped off a good bit of those sleeves.

To make sure both sleeves were even, I laid the chopped sleeve over the other, then snipped.

I snipped the leftover bottom scrap to turn it into a sash.

I tied that bottom scrap around my waist obi-style, and that was it!

It’s comfy, too!

I hope you’re not to peeved at me for my failure to post every day. :/ I hate to think I’m letting you guys down.

But, I think you’ll be happier with the quality of my posts when I’m not scrambling to just put something up every day.
