69 Days to Go: Diane's NDAD Creation

It was meant to be, featuring Diane's remake today. Here's why... A - I was talking about Las Vegas with some friends this weekend where the Luxor came up in conversation.

B, I jetted past a Chevron selling $20 Egyptian cotton 800-1200 thread count sheets (yes, at a gas station - anyone else privy to this phenomenon?)

So, as you will shortly see, Diane's dress was somehow planting these subliminal messages to be used this weekend :)

I cracked up when I saw this $2.00 Egyptian print dress in the thrift store and after reading your blog I knew that I could make it cute with a few revisions!

See what I mean?!?

So I bought the dress from the astonished clerk (who thought no one would ever buy it), took it home and started cutting!

I removed the sleeves, adjusted the seams to make the dress fit more flattering, cut off 11 inches from the bottom, and finished the hem.  I styled it with my black scarf as a belt and will wear it with a black shrug (if it's too cool out) and with my gold sandals, of course!


Cute summery dress D!  Would love to see a pic of your wearing it!!  PS, the use of your sequined scarf-as-belt rules.  Way to go!!
