Another trend I wasn't about to jump on right away was the whole hi-low thing. A lot of the dresses and such that I see out there are super short (think 60s minis) in the front and practically train length in the back. Uh... no thanks. But recently I've seen a few much more subtle hi to low options and I thought I would try it out with this refashion.
I happened upon this skater style dress outside my local GT Boutique (that'd be Giant Tiger kids) for $5.00. Yup, FIVE BUCKS. Since it was red, I couldn't pass it up, and I knew I'd be able to make it wearable for me, since it sure wasn't in its current state/length.
So I took a measurement from my natural waist (where, thankfully the seam line on the skater dress actually hit) to where I thought a peplum should fall. It was approximately 9 inches. I then laid out the dress sideways, made a mark about 9 inches down from the front and just went to town and cut a new hi/low hemline. It was $5. Be adventurous.
Now slap that baby on with a belt (or 2 or 3 or whatever floats your boat) and rock it with some skinny jeans or a pencil skirt or whatevs!
Not bad for $5.00!
I'm planning on wearing this on Sunday, so you'll see it in a few days in a pin-spired What Mama Wears post!
What do you think? Have you ever refashioned?
