One Dress, Three Ways: Fake Vest Edition

5 Sweater DIYs To Keep You Cozy All Winter Long
Mary Poppins: A Reader ReFash

I can’t believe the weekend is almost over! Ugh! I hope yours was as fun & relaxing as mine was!

I spent most of today in this green frock:

Yes. That’s a fake vest. :/

Whoa Nelly! This is a fine example of unflattering 80’s wear…complete with an attached fake vest! The mind reels.

Since I see quite a few ways I can redo this dress, this feels like a time for…

That’s right! One Dress, Three Ways!!!!!

For my first refashion of this frock, I’m going no-sew.

I made a few snips…

Later, massive pads!
I shall not miss you, fake vest!

I pulled up the front part of the dress to over my knees…sort of like I was making a curtsy…

Then, I safety-pinned it in the back, hiding the pin on the inside of the fold.

It took a little finagling.

And that’s all it took!

Digging the high-low look!
It was quite a bit windy today!

Without the vest part, I actually really like the print on this frock. :)

My new dress enjoyed a late lunch with friends. :)

Hey guys!

I wonder what I’ll do to it next…:)
