Ashley’s Reader ReFash!

Caeley's Reader ReFash!
One Dress, Three Ways III !

I’m LOVING all of the terrific Reader ReFashes you guys have been sending in!  This week’s comes from Ashley in Philly (Hey!  I was just there!).

She began with this ho-hum dress right here:

She might just be my funny face twin! :)

I found this dress at a thrift store for around 3 dollars.  I took in the sides and took off some length, chopped off the sleeves, turned the dress around so the buttons are in the back, and cut the neckline down a bit.  The after picture is taken next to the Delaware River in New Hope, PA.  I got two compliments on the dress from total strangers, which totally made my day!

Look at that dress now!

Congrats, Ashley! You did that dress a favor!

I like how she mentions getting compliments from strangers about her refashion.  That’s one of the BEST feelings…having others appreciate something that you created!  And instead of saying, “Thanks!  I got it at *insert boring store name here*”, you get to say, “Thanks!  I made it out of something else!”

Which response would you rather give?  Which response sounds like a fun conversation starter?  I rest my case.  :)

Cheers!  Keep those awesome refashes coming!  :)
