Going through my storage today I found a bag full of clothes that I was supposed to donate. In the bag was this “dress”. I’ve had this “dress” for over ten years and probably haven’t worn it in about 8 years. The thing is, this dress is actually a slip. It was also a “maxi” length slip that I bought to wear under a long dress for some formal school dance. Well, after several failed attempts to give it up for consigment I chucked it in the donation bag and never gave it any more thought…until tonight.
I was in one of those “destruction/creation” moods and wanted something to either sew or cut or in this case, reinvent. So I started cutting, and cutting a little more…until it was perfect.
What I have now is a sexy bandage dress with or wihtout shawl collar. The shawl is the bottom half of the slip. Oh and I also have a new wrap around headband, thanks to a small strip off the dress. Wow, three new pieces with one 10 year old slip. I feel very satisfied. I can’t wait to wear it out!!
