Denim Sundress

Check out this 'before' dress! If it looks familiar, well, it should. I've already remade another dress from the same source, and now it's this one's turn!

Denim Sundress - Before

I came across this cute little chambray sundress, via Pinterest naturally, and I decided to copy-cat it.

I used half the circumference of the original skirt to make my new skirt. Then I cut pieces for the bodice, pockets, and straps from the remainder of the dress.

It's not a perfect copy, sure - mine doesn't have adorable little white polka dots all over, and I opted to add straps - but I really like how it turned out!

That's what I call a refashion!!!! Amazing, girl.
The before picture is hilarious, and the after is like the perfect dress: pockets, the shirring on the front, the bottom layers....

It's still snowing where I am, but you are ready for SPRING!

Shall I add to the adoring comments? I have to because this is too too cute and amazing and I'm feeling a bit if I need to step up my game a bit more ;) hahaha, so lovely on you and really, a great transformation because the before was a tent and not an attractive tent. You are kinda my idol. Ha! Beat that :)
