Upcycle FAIL

A cotton “tent” that I cut down to size. All seams are fully serged and the hem is handstitched. I really like the fabric and the idea of the style, but unfortunately it’s really not flattering on me at all.

Even more unfortunately, the photos have come out flattering!

Read my frustration and see more pics on my blog

    The dress does look good in the photos on your blog. I like the white but could.you not try dying it if you don’t like it. x

      Unfortunately, it won’t fix the figure flaws. :)

      Actually, I like the white, and I think this dress will look great on someone who can pull off a shift dress.

      That said, it’s a great idea to try dyeing, and I’m going to keep that in mind for future projects. Thanks for the inspiration! :)
