I made a dress!

I saw this "ballerina dress" at Urban Outfitters...sooo cute, yet so expensive, especially considering it was from the "Urban Renewal" line which is basically old clothes and vintage fabrics re-created into something Urban Outfitters-esque.

I decided to make the dress myself! I cut a long piece of fabric from a large dress that was given to me, made a gathered skirt and connected it to this old grey tank top I've had lying around. I even added a little pink ribbon to the waist (not on the UO dress), which I think makes it even cuter. What do you think?


  1. adorable! well done- now you just need someone to tell you they like and you can mention its hand made :)

  2. Thanks Lisa! Too bad it's starting to get cold here. No longer dress weather! :(
