Upcycled Dress "Daisy Dream”
I completely refashioned what was once a short sleeve (with shoulder pads), tie back, long dress into a cute sleeveless (no shoulder pads!), side ties, short sun dress. After cutting about a foot off the length, I ripped out the shoulder pads & cut off the sleeves (to reinforce the new armholes, I added a green bias tape). I absolutely love the daisies falling on a dark olive print, and the criss cross neckline is very unique. There are 3 fabric buttons on the front of the bodice and the open waist kind of foods and opens up to the bottom of the skirt, but there are no slits in the skirt. The dress is fitted with a back zipper, instead of a single back tie, I used scraps from the discarded excess skirt length to make extra straps to the center front - now there are two ties, one on each side. Upcycled and one-of-a-kind.
The original brand is "Brett Alixander" size 9/10. 100% Rayon.
