(thrifted suede dress, JC lita's, H&M stole, DIY turban)

I'm completely insane for trying to alter this dress on my own, but it was originally a little long for my tastes. I don't own a sewing machine, nor do I have even a slight understanding of stitching. Nevertheless, I became a little scissor-happy after a weekend brunch and hacked up the bottom of this lovely vintage find. Yeah, I'm an ass. I'm going to find a friend to help me "mend" the situation. BUT on the plus side--ah! yes I am oh so savvy--I made a little suede turban out of the remaining fabric.  I'm considering adding a black suede strip to the bottom of the dress, for extra length and to complete the 60's drop waist vibe.

  4. love love love this look! i am rather obsessed with both fur and unique tights at the moment. and it's nice to see another buffalo gal who cares so much about fashion instead of the standard uggs, leggings, north face look that plagues the queen city

  8. That's clever to make a turban from the extra fabric. The dress is darling on you, and I think the extra black strip will be a nice touch!

  9. haha sometimes DIY's don't go quite right, but this looks really cute! sometimes you just have to go for it right?

    if you do decide to add the black strip make sure you let us all see the results!
