DIY rocks!

Back in the day, I casually mentioned that I finally got myself a sewing machine and proclaimed that the wonderful world of home-sewing would soon be my kingdom. Well, I haven't exactly been productive, but sometime in late May, I managed to do this little alteration:The dress is by Bershka and I bought it on sale for 3 euros. Well, 2.95 to be exact. It was supposed to be a kind of loose beach dress, but the multi-colored band wouldn't fit around my chest. However, it had exactly the circumference of my under the bust measurement and I also had a pair of gray leggings I never wore, so I had an idea...Wore it last night with white flip-flops and it felt great!

This is incredible! I'm really impressed... I NEVER would have thought to use leggings for the top, but it looks like it turned out really well! Hooray for you and hooray for a new dress!
