First, I'm working on my second tutorial!! :) I'm hoping to get it all done within the next few weeks. (yes I know I take forever...but I'm trying my best!)
If you read my previous post you know that my niece is an HONOR STAR! One of the highlights for a girl being crowned as an Honor Star, is that she wears a beautiful white (or in this case...off white) dress. Lack of funds forced me to be resourceful. I had to do something I had never done before....I had to "Thrift" a fancy dress for her.
I purchased an Ivory dress at a local thrift store for $12.00. I Really didn't do much to the dress. I washed it, then I added a rhinestone trim to the waist. A friend of mine taught me how to "Whip" and "slide" stitch to attach the rhinestone trim to the dress.
I was so happy with the results and my niece looked beautiful!
Do any of you thrift anything? What is your most favorite "thrifty" creation?
