The Shapeless Sack of a Dress

Hello Refashion Co-op. I found this shapeless sack of a dress at a thrift store for only $1. It would have been crazy to charge more, it's not very attractive. It was in good shape and a nice light weight for summer.

After some experimenting I settled on denim colored dye. I also shortened the dress and used that cut off fabric to make a simple matching belt. I had the buckle in my sewing stuff just waiting to be used. I think it used to be in my mother's button box. It could be an antique!

I like the color more now and the length is better. The belt really makes it more flattering.

Bad hair day? Just grab a hat!

For more details about how I dyed it twice and pictures go to  I Can Work With That.

Thanks for reading, now go make something fun for yourself.

The belt makes all the difference! And the shorter knee length is perfect for you. Great job, and though I liked the original color, I feel this definitely suits you better, so good call!
