Ah! Flowers and leopard print…a perfect combination!
Actually, I don’t mind the oddball combo, but I’m seeing a bit too much of it! I decided to lop off a bunch from the bottom, and make this dress into a top! It’s definitely a jeans day for me, folks! 🙂
Next, I stitched up that raw edge. There will be no fraying for this girl!
I haven’t nagged you guys about this for a while, but make sure you press all of your new seams and hems. This makes you piece look more polished, and it helps set the stitches too! 🙂
Now my new top is ready for a fun night of hanging out with friends!

I cannot understand how the dress went from hideous to trendy and cute simply because you significantly shortened it, but it did. Mind boggling.
Holy crap! I LOVE this top! Actually, I love just about everything that you have done! I am what you could call, a terrible craft person. I am. I cannot sew a stich to save my life, (basically, I would just die) but I have been looking at everything you have accomplished and I want to do it too!!! I am an avid goodwill-thrift clothes shopping fiend, (my whole outfit to day is from a goodwill) so I have that covered! If only I could convince my huzzy to buy me a sewing machine….
The transformation is amazing! The dress started off as a moo moo and you turned it into such a cute top!! LOVED this!
You make it look so simple…..Lol
what a change! looks great!
Uau! Amazing work!
This is amazing. Totally over powering and gaudy as a dress. Adorable and totally bohemian top! Love it! You have such an eye for magical redesigns.
This is awesome. I am into this kind of stuff 100 %. The way it looks, top is worth a lot.
MUCH better as a top – well done. How is your arm now? All better I hope!
I love doing this kind of stuff, especially with 25-cent garage sales deals =D
25 cents! Wow! You might have me beat as the best deal finder out there! 😉 I hardly ever make it to yard sales, as alas…I am not a morning person. 🙂
Surprisingly cute! What a transformation! That dress was a little crazy looking at first but the top is cute and unique 😉
