Darling Alteration: Simple Taupe Dress

It's been awhile and I finallyyy have got into the groove of things. My mind has been somewhere else for awhile and now I'm truly back! Haha.

With this alteration I kept the dress pretty simple because I love the color and texture of the material. It speaks for itself without having too much going on.


 I thrifted this dress for about $3.50 in a size 10. The dress did not have much shape to it at all.


I cut the dress length in half and hemmed the bottom. I altered the waist to fit my figure and added two creases to add more shape to the dress. With the extra fabric I made a detachable bow belt for when I want to wear the dress with or without it. :)



 I wore my white pumps, rosegold watch, and pearl earrings with this simple and classy dress. I sure love the simplicity.







Now, I just need an occasion to wear this lovely dress out! :)
