Refashion: Purple Polka Dot Maxi

I found this maxi dress while thrifting and had it laying around my bedroom for over a year because I could not decide what I wanted to do with it at the time. I was torn between keeping it as a maxi dress or turning it into a swing dress... but the maxi finally won! It just took me over a year to decide. Haha! They are so effortlessly feminine and incredibly comfortable therefore my choice is validated. :)

 


Before the alteration:



There were too many pleats so...



I sewed them all together except for two on the left and right side.



V-neck, plunge back, and spaghetti straps.


 


The refashioned maxi dress:


 


Purple polka dot maxi dress with a white floral crown I made awhile ago. Hippie love. :)




 










Polka dot maxi dress + flower crown = perfection. :)

  9. WOW! That turned out great! Seriously, I would have looked at that dress and said "wow, cool 1950's theme party dress" but you took and made it so modern. Thanks for the inspiration! :)
