Oi, I have these dresses in my closet that I have a hard time wearing - I was going through my closet and came across these dresses that weren't really working as dresses anymore, so I took some time (about 2hrs) with my sewing machine to convert them!
And I've made an outfit for each of them for next week (I have two overnight shifts, so I only need 4 outfits)!
Dress 1/2 - Anthropologie dress I got for a song; but the top is definitely cut small for a size 4 and as a result of this, I can't really wear it! I was hoping to convert this, as there was a cute Boden skirt I saw - The Poppy Skirt - that this plaid reminds me of (http://www.bodenusa.com/en-US/.....Skirt.html)
Dress 3/4 - Loved this pattern (who doesn't love deer frolicking in a meadow?), but again, the top was cut too small for me; it is an Anna Sui for Anthropologie dress. Kept the playful pattern and the ribbon tie :)
Dress 5/6 - My repellant dress from F&F I bought in a size 10 and a 12, but the 12 fits me up top a lot better, so the 10 is going to be a skirt! Flouncy!
Dress 7/8 - I've shown you this one before, but I made a few modifications to the flounce of the skirt to keep the pockets and not have the rear end be too saggy (which was a design flaw in the first version).
I thought I'd share my crafts with you :)
