dour to darling…

What’s an über quick way to update a rather hideous dress from the 80′s?

Transform it into a boho-esque blouse with a couple of snips & 15 minutes worth of stitches!

Here’s how:

Pull that dour, multi-layered, shoulder-padded monstrosity of a dress out from the bottom of your stash…

remove the unreasonably huge shoulder pads…

decide what length you’d like the sleeves to be & chop ‘em off (leaving a few extra cms for hemming)…

turn it inside out & slice off the skirt…

head over to your machine & hem the sleeves & bottom of your fancy new blouse…

Slip it on & let the compliments roll in!

all the tutes!
