I had a special occasion coming up and wanted a new dress. My budget was quite tight so I decided to make my own from clothes I already had. I had 2 items that I had purchased for only a couple bucks from a thrift shop. I never wear them and the shirt was too big anyways. So I decided to cut them up and make them into something new.
I was very happy with the results, I received many complements, and I got a dress for free. Yay! This is very easy to do. If you can turn your machine on and sew a straight line, you can make a dress too!
Total Time: Hour or less
Yield: 1 dress
I love to see clothing upcycle. I am losing weight (intentional) and I have my favourites in my clothing I have been searching for simple updates to continue stretch my wardrobe $.
You have "out frugaled" me and got a great outfit to boot! Great job!
I need a dress for our Son's wedding. This may be the answer. I'm already tired of looking for a dress. Thank you.
