It’s the last week of Refashion Runway, and somehow I made it to the end! This weeks challenge was a summer dress, and, anyone who has seen my blog probably realizes that dresses are my favorite thing to wear..
I took to a local thrift shop to find a dress to refashion for this project and I came across this Coldwater Creek dress (with the tags STILL on it – $69.00 – I got it for $3.99!). I’ll admit, I usually play it safe with dresses I refashion (choosing ones that are somewhat close to my size), so at a size 18 this would be the biggest refashion I have ever tackled., but the color was so perfect I couldn’t pass it up…
Took it in in the back and on the sides
Added darts to the bust
Cover the buttons
