Making Stuff: Vintage Party Dress Refashion

by This is Carrie on December 14, 2009

Definitely one of my favorite refashions–a dress for the firm holiday party.

Crazy quilted dress from my favorite thrift and vintage store ($10.80 full price).

oh this is amazing, can you give me some of your sewing talent to me for chirstmas?

Tracy M December 14, 2009 at 5:27 pm

The fact that you could SEE the beauty that maxi dress was capable of bespeaks of your insane creativity. Well done!

p.s. Love it with the gladiator heels.

Incredible! I agree with Tracy M. I love it with the heels. It almost has a Twilight look :)

Chelsey December 14, 2009 at 6:33 pm

Great refashion.

Can we TALK about the shoes? SO FAB. Loving those.

Zinone December 15, 2009 at 1:56 am

Oh wow! Turned out so cute! And I second the shoes. Great choice!

Kathi D December 15, 2009 at 5:44 am

Wow! I agree, not only is the outfit GREAT, but that you could see that dress turning into something cute? Amazing! Love the shoes.

Kathi D December 15, 2009 at 5:47 am

$10.80 is probably less than the price of a dessert at the party.

heather December 15, 2009 at 7:04 am

love the dress! amazing talent to be able to see the potential of that dress.

Kage December 15, 2009 at 12:21 pm

One of these matte polishes would look awesome with that outfit and the toes peeping out. I am scared of ankle boots, thanks for showing me an option of how to wear.

Trudy Callan December 15, 2009 at 3:27 pm

Excellent refashion. Love, love, love it.

Shannon December 15, 2009 at 8:11 pm
