After finding this dress at Volunteers of America (thrift store) for $1.99 I literally could not wait to transform it for my next refashion.
This dress was actually really easy to refashion. I only had to do a couple of things:
- Removed the shoulder pads (always remove the shoulder pads!)
- Cut off the sleeves and sewed around arms
- Hemmed (took off 8 inches!)
Finding dresses like this in thrift stores always leaves me wondering what kind of person once wore it. This dress totally screamed 80’s but I can’t decide if it was a party dress or a business dress, what are your thoughts?
