DRAB TO FAB | Dress Refashion

This  Moo Moo was found at a thrift store for $2 and I fell in love with the pretty purple fabric and floral print. When I saw the dress, I knew I could update the look. I came up with a plan and I got to chopping. Listed below are the steps I took to create my FAB look. Remember to have fun with your style and stay beautiful!!

Tip #1: Look in your local thrift store for any over sized/shapeless dresses made with a great print. You can always make it your own!

Tip #2: A great way to learn how to sew and get use to your machine is to practice on inexpensive items you find at the thrift store. 

The top was made using a t-shirt pattern and I added added tabs for sleeves.  The neckline was created by using an interfacing to keep it nice and neat.
