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, PurpleBees Creations.

Keep up the awesome work, Chloe!  :)
