I bought this dress for cheap online to wear to a party. However when it arrived it was awful! Seriously bad. I thought the colour would be nice and neutral, but it looked dirty and did nothing for me. The fit (which I was expecting to be quite flowy) felt like a maternity dress - and I am in no way pregnant! If I had ended up going to the party I would have definitely worn something else.
(I should have bought it in black!)
I really liked the neckline and the lace sleeves though, so I decided to make it into a top. I first added it to a dye bath with a few other items, and then cut a dipped hem.
(The hem is even, I promise!)
Now it's a gorgeous coral long sleeve top, and the lace shows up much better. I also made a cheeky top with the remaining fabric.
Thanks for reading!
