Coffee Bean Wrap Dress

I picked up this coffee bean print dress in the same thrift store trip that I picked up the jumpsuit that got new life as a dress last year.
It had a collar, a couple of awkward front buttons and strings to tie the back. But the print was perfect… coffee beans!
This large, long and strange caffeinated dress had the makings of a perfect wrap dress. I removed all the extra things like shoulder pads, buttons, ties and strange armpit panels. Then I cut the dress down the center, got rid of the collar, fine tuned the sizing, shortened the dress and reattached the ties to make my coffee bean wrap dress.

You can see the details and more pictures from this refashion on my blog at
