I started off with this homemade dress that I thrifted for $5. I bought it because it was homemade, not because I particularly liked the dress or the fabric. But I knew I could turn this piece around. Literally.
The back, to me, seemed like it should be the front, while the front (with the zipper up the belly, the strange gap at the top of the zip and below the buttons...) seemed like it should be the back.
So, I chopped off the top of the bodice including the sleeves, turned it around, created a cutout in my new back, chopped off the hem to make straps, took some in so that it fit, tweaked here and there, and finally finished off the skirt's hem.
And guess what? I really really really like it!
It's perfect for twirling :).
Hope you enjoy this as much as I do, and if you have any questions on how I did this (as you may with the lack of step-by-step shots), feel free to check out my blog or ask! I'd love to hear from you :).
