It’s about time I undertook another DIY Dress Up e-course project! The latest project I tackled helped fulfill my desire for some new dresses in my closet for spring and summer, but hardly cost any money. A total win win in my book.
The class tutorial for this tank dress involved sacrificing a store-bought tank top (mine was from Target a few years ago), and sewing a full skirt to the bottom half. I thought this red tank looked pretty spectacular paired with this unique hand printed fabric that I purchased secondhand (I think it was $4 for a little over a yard). I’m especially smitten with the metallic gold accents in the fabric’s bold design.
I’ve previously made oodles of skirts using similar instructions, so this was a fairly simple project to undertake. I actually made two different dresses over the course of the weekend, and just picked up fabric to make a third! I’m sure they’ll be gracing my blog soon.
