Have I talked about this little top yet? I don’t think so – but I keep meaning to, because it’s one of my go to lazy day pieces.
Sometimes I like to buy things because I see potential in them. Not because of what it is right now, but because of what it could be.
If you follow the Delightful Dozen like i do – you’ve probably seen them all style up the Modcloth Dynamite dress. I loved the print of that dress. But after all of their comments, and reviews on Modcloth – it was obvious that it was unwearably short for a regular height person. But when it went on sale for $10 I bought it – knowing I could make something else out of it.
When it arrived I could see why everyone had complained. The quality was really low – and though I am a lover of short skirts, and I’m not very tall – this dress was a butt scraper. yikes.
So I made a really quick alteration to it.
I lifted up the top tier, and carefully cut away the bottom tier.
Now I have a cute flowy tank top for summer! (and even better I used the bottom tier to make something for Bunny that I’ll show you tomorrow!). If you have a good memory – yes I’ve already worn it exactly the same way, and this was it tucked in last week.
ps. here’s the tutorial for making these cut off shorts – since a couple of people have asked :)
