My very first DIY

The other day while hunting through my favourite local charity shop i came across this BRIGHT dress, loving the print i tried it on, but its length & over all boldness made it far to much for me to handle but for $4 i decided to pick it up anyway with the vision of hemming it & making it more modern & wearable

The dress before
Whilst trying it on to hem it i decided against my original idea & decided to make a skirt from it & then mum convinced me to make a little jacket out of the top half.

I could not be happier with the results

I paired the Jacket with a pair of Just jeans blue chinos & a black singlet

The skirt is worn with a black tee.

I'm sooooo happy with it & cant wait to find more wonder i can alter.
