Refashion – 80’s to Today

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?
