So I found this awesome dress at the thrift store.
Awesome, right? I could go camping in it. (In the poor dress's defense, it was originally a maternity dress.)
I really loved the fabric. It's a nice, swishy, machine-washable rayon in an adorable print.
I originally had planned to knock off a particular ModCloth dress, but was unable to find a contrasting fabric that I liked. (Don't worry, one day....just be patient.) I realized the swaths of fabric I cut off the bottom could easily be refashioned into my-super-favorite-style: neck ties!
The neck ties are rather hard to see in these pictures, but they're there. Promise. Gah! I may have created my new favorite dress. It just looks like a teacher dress, right? I love dresses with sleeves.
Though I didn't create a tutorial for this dress, the premise is simple - take up a longer dress and turn the trimmed off bit into neck ties (see tutorial here).
