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:

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