Seeing Spots

I made this shirt from a dress I'd never worn by cutting off the bottom and resewing on the ruffle.  I used some of the excess fabric to make a bow.

Thrifted Items:  Jeans $6.99 Express, black cardigan, shoes $2.


  1. That is a great idea for a dress, it looks nice as a top now !


  2. Excellent upcycle! And I like the extra bow you made.

  3. Those jeans are wonderful- lovely color and a very flattering fit. Great work transforming the dress into a very wearable shirt. I love the sophisticated polka dot print. I adore dots but they can sometimes seem a bit too young in a "Minnie Mouse" kind of way. Yours look chic, not silly.
    This post reminded me of the bow you made to cover the bleach damaged sweater. Did you end up re-working that sweater? Or did you just let it go?

    1. haha That bleach stained sweater has been hanging on my unused treadmill awaiting my attention ever since that post. I's literally 5 feet from where I sit at this computer...and where I do my hand sewing. Did I mention I'm a procrastinator? lol
