Refashion, Resew, ReNew!

My mom made this dress for me along with a matching tie for my dad a little over a year ago for Fathers day. I’ve always loved the fabric, but the fit was just a little too retro for my taste. One day when I was bored and home alone, I chopped it up and hoped for the best

It took quite a few alterations before I got it right, but it’s gorgeous now! I love the fit and it’s so much easier to style now! Throw on a few gold accessories and an accent color, it’s perfect! Check out my before and after!
