Dress Decorating! Birds and Buttons

I tend to pick up a lot of simple, solid colored items with the intent of adding to them or because I like to own versatile items that can be styled a number of ways. This black midi length was a little big, but I could see it had a great shape. It was a blank canvas.
I didn't intentionally pose to look I'm a total downer. "I'm all slouching and bummed because my dress is boring!" is what I'm apparently trying to say with this picture. In my last refashion, I used a black and aqua striped belt to brighten up an outfit. Out of the proverbial tons of belts that I've amassed, I must really like that one because I used it again.
More of the same from me! I aim for retro pin up style that's also appropriate for kindergarten. I hope that when February vacation is done, my 5 and 6 year olds like my birds and buttons dress.
Relive the process here on my blog, Craft, Thrift, or Die!

For Portlandia fans: put a bird on it! I love all the additions to the dress. Great job!

You will, of course, need to be down at eye level --unless you have very tall students!

I remember my Mom saying that when she taught kindergarten she always wore brightly coloured and patterned socks!
