Two Things to Make From a Thrift Store Dress: Infinity Scarf and Headband

Last year I bought this dress:


Classy huh? It reminds me of my mom's old bridesmaids dresses I used to play dress-up in as a kid.  Well I had plans to re-vamp this dress and turn it into something wearable.  I tried to customize the dress and when that failed I tried to make it into a skirt........ which also failed.  sad.

My last resort was a scarf...and then I still had extra fabric so I tried a headband.  Finally! Something worked!

  6. Beautiful! I really wish I had an eye for things like this. I can never envision anything except the outdated mess sitting in front of me. I bet I've walked away from some really great fabric because I can't see past it's current appearance!

    1. I know what you mean! Sometimes the smells drive me away from stuff. I just have to remember that it can be washed and turned into something beautiful.
