Darling Alteration: Solid & Pattern Maxi

Maxis are a staple for this summer so when I stumbled upon this old looking dress while thrifting I knew it could turn into something spectacular and easy to alter.


This is the dress before the alteration. It had sleeves with a large vest on the outside. I removed the vest, cut the sleeves off to make the maxi into a tank, then took in the sides to add shape.


And thee after! Very simple and elegant and I didn't have to make too many alterations which is fine by me. ;) The top is solid white while the bottom has a light plaid/checkered pattern.


 I wore the sequin collar I made awhile back which you can find the tutorial here and a cognac belt.




  Anddd without the sequin collar.







I'm in love with maxis and I'm sure I will be altering and making some more very soon! They are surely comfy and adorable. :)
