Dress & Tie Refashion

Okay peeps this is my first “fashion” post. Be gentle.

Dress & Tie Refashion

I have attempted many a sewing project for myself. With all sorts of curves ~ I’ve never been happy with any of them ~ until now.

Have you seen the gorgeous dress refashions all over blog land? I have. And I love them! Check out more examples here, here and here. And a fab tutorial here.

I bought this dress at a second hand store for $7. Cute. Could be cuter {if cuter were a word}. Then I grabbed a too short brown tank, cut the top of the dress off and sewed them together.

I also picked up this tie. {Great colours right?}

And combined it with this belt buckle.

I ran my tie through the belt buckle and pinned at my desired length.

And threaded the larger end of the tie back through my buckle.

Had to share this one. Our fashion shoot was at a local park ~ we took the boys to feed the ducks ~ and it poured rain. Poured. But the birds were fun. Especially this pigeon on my head. Yup. Fun.
