Denim and Ruffles

Found this denim ruffle top dress for a $1 at one of my favorite thrift stores.  The fit was big and the dress was simply too long.  I wasn't really sure what I would do the dress but I knew it definitely had to be modified.



 So I decided to change the denim dress into a one shoulder relaxed fit dress.  Started of by removing the elastic waist band. I then sewed up one of the armholes and took in the dress by a few inches.  Moving on to the bottom of the skirt, I made a straight skirt using my measurements.  I attached the top and bottom together at the seams.


I loved the results.  Not bad for a $1 dress.

Love it. Looks way more expensive then $1. The transformation is awesome and it looks so good on. Very sexy yet fun and great for day or night.

You look glamourous, the original dress certainly didn't! I like that you kept the ruffle just updated it

Very chic!

The ruffles and the elastic waist were a really unflattering combo. Nixing the gathered waist and highlighting the ruffles with the asymmetric neckline was the perfect decision! Excellent job!
