3 ways to wear it-Dress ReStyle

Today I'm doing something a little different! I usually do my 3 ways to wear it like > this < but today I'm bringing the real life edition!

flattering yes?
um No. 

I recently picked up this dress for next to nothing at a thrift store because I loved the colors and details. Just not the fit. At all. But I knew I could make it work! (Tim Gunn anyone?)
So I chopped that sucker in half 
added a hemline to one side and a waistband to the other,
stitched it all down and

2 super versatile pieces to wear 3 ways!

I wore it as a top on Saturday for a evening of live music at a local brewhouse

You've already seen Tuesdays outfit from this post about adding pockets but I wore the skirt part just hanging around the house 

I haven't had a chance to wear it this way yet but I just tucked the shirt into the skirt and added a belt! Michael and I are due for our first date alone after Ivy so I'm thinking this just might be the thing to wear:)

 I'll be back next Friday with my usual 3 ways to wear it but I was excited with how this turned out and wanted to share! Before you go, make sure to check out my giveaway over on 
The Charming Blog and thanks for stopping by!

  1. That outfit with the denim shirt and belt is too perfect! I need to figure out how to pull off a belt like that...and immediately going to look for a denim shirt. Cute restyle!

  2. Well, now I wish I'd kept a similar dress, so I could restyle it!

  3. I absolutely love this DIY style post! =) I can't tell which outfit styling I like best...

  4. this is great! i look forward to being able to make something like this on my sewing machine. One day! Also great post about adding pockets to any skirt. I just started using fabric hankies and now I need pockets in everything.
