This was such a great find! I went to goodwill and decided to look for cool fabrics and items I could redo. I came across this green checkered dress with these lovely buttons. I am a button whore and any chance I get to buy some I do! So, this dress was way too big for me and it has these huge shoulder pads, but I knew it could be something cute that suited me. I got to drawing and I came up with a wonderful summer or evening dress.
Recycled: cotton dress, buttons, and elastic. New: elastic for the top.
