Have you ever wished that clothing could be more educational. I know I have! 😉 Well, you’re in luck. This dress not only looks atrocious but it also labels the types of flowers that are printed on the fabric. So you can learn the flower’s names while you’re wearing it! Botany enthusiasts everywhere are rejoicing!
The print of this dress scared me away at first. I saw it at a local thrift shop where I get most of my treasures and I passed it up. I really couldn’t imagine how I could keep it a dress and tame the fabric down enough to work for me. I was very charmed by it though, the print is super unique and the fabric is really nice quality. I told myself if it was still there on my next thrifting outing that I would have to try it. Can you believe that nobody else claimed it? I had to bring her home with me. After trying the dress on, it was clear to me that a skirt would be a nice option to tone down that fabric a little. The less of the fabric there was, the more charming it became! I ripped the seam out at the waist of the dress. I then cut off the bottom portion of the dress and gave it a new hem. The zipper in the back of the dress continued past the skirt ended at the waist so I trimmed off the extra and tacked in the ends so that I wouldn’t lose my zipper. That was it!
My new mission is to find a piece with multiplication tables or U.S presidents!
