On Monday, I brought to readers HOW I PRACTICE AFFORDABLE FASHION…well, here is one more idea, though I have only done this once!  

Years ago my husband showed up from a business trip with a dress for me…it was this print in an ankle length maxi dress!  It was overwhelming…and though I appreciated his gift…I just could not go out in the dress.

So, I designed a way to cut it off…laid it out on the floor…looked at the pocket placement…and even did a high/low hemline…and I chopped away.  Then I actually took it to the dry cleaners to have them sew in the hem.

I love it and wear it as a tunic or a jacket with a black tank underneath.  It was one way to keep a garment and re-fashion it to work better for me. 

 It is so nice that it matches perfectly these COLORFUL METRO LEGGINGS AT SOFT SURROUNGINGS.  Looks like they were made for one another!

Have you ever re-designed a garment to work for you??  Let us know…then go join in with these wonderful blogs on the Favorite Things Thursday Blog Hop!!
