I felt I needed a little spruce up to fit my lifestyle. I gave myself a little 30 minute fashion makeover.
I bought this cute little house dress off of Ebay. I love vintage house dresses. This one is in great shape and is handmade. It just needed a little work to make it look lovely.
I shortened the dress a few inches. I folded the fabric and pressed the new hem as I went along. I didn't even use pins. Once it was pressed, I machine sewed in place. Super quick...the entire process was less than 30 minutes. That includes cleanup!
I put on a fun summer hat and some of my pretty cuff bracelets and I'm good to go!
(PS For those of you following my shed remodel, you are getting a peek at my color scheme. Done soon...I Promise!)
The top bracelet it one I made. The bottom bracelet is antique American Indian Pawn from around the 1940's I think.
I'm soooo retro and funky for my trip to the K mart! :-)
Sometimes its the simple things that make me happy!
I hope my little dress makeover inspires you to take a few minutes out of your day for a project that makes you feel good.
