On my latest D.I. adventure I found this gem:
ok Devaun makes anything look sexy, but believe me, it was awful.
So I made the neckline round, took up the bodice, removed shoulder pads+collar, took out the sleeves, brought the hem up 3-4inches and took the entire dress in by about 2 inches on each side.
And here's my $4+lots-of-work dress now:
I also found this great 60's-ish pencil skirt. All I had to do was take in the sides a few inches, and I was set for my Valentine's Day party!
Even though thrift stores are smelly, I love them!
