Dress makeover







Hello guys. I love changing, or upgrading clothes. This time I found long polka dot dress, it is designed in a simple straight line. There was nothing catchy about this dress - I think this is the most important quality of the clothes that potentially can be changed or reinvented. So what I decided to make out of this dress is... vest








For this project I used:
Old dress (above)
and
Bias tape:


I cut the front part in half , and also made slits at both sides, and then I sewed bias tape along the front, hem, around each slid and along the neck line. Then I made a belt from leftovers of my old belt - black parts and connected those three parts (in black fabric) with the same white bias tape, basically the belt is transparent.





Outfit:
Vest- hand made from dress
Top-old, no tag
Pants-INC
Shoes - GUESS
Clutch-Estee Lauder
Belt-hand made
Bracelet: Rhona

Thank you so much for reading
I will talk to you later

  40. Понравилось все:и как из платья соорудить желет ,и брючный вариант его использования,
    и как смотрится пояс...По-моему желет можно использовать и как пляжный вариант.
    Просто молодец!
