Goodwill dress refashion #4

I've had this one done for a few weeks and have been eager to share it with others. Here's the frumpy before picture {I can't help but giggle when I see these before pics}...it for sure smelled like it had been drenched with perfume then left in a closet for 15 years.

A little TLC and help from my sewing machine yielded this fun summer frock.


It would be perfect for the beach {hint, hint - Dad} or for any summer soiree.


I just moved the elastic waist up, sewed it in a bit, and added the ruffle to the neckline.

  3. Very cute! I love to shop thrift stores for "fabric"! I know people look at me like I am crazy when I buy plus size clothes since I am a size 2! But you get more fabric that way!
