I was a part of the Refashionista series with I am momma, hear me roar blog(check it out here), and this is the project I submitted. I went to the thrift store twice and went to a bunch of stores, hoping to find something I can refashion but had no luck! Discouraged, I went through my "I need to work on this...some day" file, and decided to go along with this dress I picked up this past Spring.
I purchased this dress at a thrift store for $4. At first glance I cringed a bit, but saw the potential with the beautiful neon green/yellow color and the polka dot fabric, so I brought it home with a goal to make it not cringe-worthy.
*not pictured, but cut the bottom length of the dress as well and hem the bottom.
and you're done!
