Chloe’s Reader ReFash!

Toga! Toga! Toga!
Wannabe Wednesday: Soft Joie Edition

I am so so so so SO happy with all the fantabulous Reader ReFashes you guys have been sending my way!  You are a terrifically creative & resourceful bunch!  :)

This week’s Reader ReFash comes from Chloe in San Angelo, Texas!

She started off with this 80s dress from Goodwill:


Don’t let the smile fool ya. She is not happy with this dress as-is!

I found THE dress at my local Goodwill. Even on the rack, I knew it was shapeless and 80s, but I absolutely loved the pattern. (I’m obsessed with polka dots. It’s probably unhealthy how much I am.) This pattern was like a quasi-dot, but it was just great, and I loved the color  (I’ve been wanting a red dress forever) .

Ah!  I am no stranger to the siren song of an awesome print!  :)

Chloe snipped, stitched, and literally turned that frumpy dress around!  I love how she went one-shoulder with it!  I’m going to have to make one of these for myself!  :)

Lady in Reeeeeed!


Check out the cute buttoned back!

The front is now the back!

You might not believe this (I’m not quite sure if I do), but this is her FIRST EVER REFASHION!!!  Can you believe that?

You can read more about how she executed this refashion at her blog,.

Keep up the awesome work, Chloe!  :)
