Summer date dress

I seriously don't know what to do with myself when I'm taking the before pictures, lol. My husband and I can hardly keep a straight face. {please focus on the dress and not the extremely messy home in the back ground...I promise I cleaned that up yesterday!}

My trip to the local Goodwill turned up this beauty. {I really wish it was easier to express sarcasm by typing} What made me pick this up? Well...it was only $4, I liked the color and it had a lot of fabric to it.

I cut off that bodice, then used the skirt fabric to make this dress. It's perfect for summer date nights or a shopping trip out with the girls!

My husband, Sean, says this is his favorite. I think it might be my new favorite one, too...
I'm excited to debut this one out-and-about soon!

  8. You're a genious! I try to see past the ugly 1980's styles when I'm at Goodwill, but I never seem to be able to imagine the finished project. Love your blog, I'm now a follower!
