so i needed a dress for the weekend , and wednesday is family day at my salvation army ( every color tag but one is half off! that is if you can survive getting wailed with carts and fighting with other customers over the best finds.) i saw this for 3 bucks. but was very leery about buying it, due to the fact that i would need to alter it, and already have around 25 articles of clothing sitting in a dusty corner waiting for the day to be made fabulous . But it was half off and being an impulse buyer, i decided it had potential due to its wonderful print.

see if you can spot the matching belt [ its camouflaged pretty well  Smiley ] i have no shots of the back but it was the same as the front.

and after it may look plain from the front but.."wait until you get a load of the back.."

and just for fun the shoes that go so well !

apologies for the terrible shots, as my easel was my camera stand   Cheesy

EDIT:! I dont know how much this will help all of you.. since you kinda have to find the right dress to do it... but it was requested so here it is!  Smiley and i made 3 tutorials for craftster in one day.. i dont think any of them are up with normal comprehendible tute standards.. but i will blame it on my limited sewing knowledge.. Roll Eyes

you cant tell im an art student from these lame drawings .... haha.. oh well.
if theres any questions due to pure confusion ... feel free to ask!
