I didn't just decide to feature today's look because the lovely reader who submitted her dress shares my name...that's just an added bonus! Check out Miss Mariss' awesome remake!
Hi Marisa, I really like your name! Haha. I have been following your blog for a few years now and find your idea of re-purposing an existing piece very inspiring. So...when I came across this great pink and white polka dot knit dress I couldn't pass it up.
As you can tell the dress was far too large for me...
...especially in the top area.
Time to check out M's remake. Spoiler alert!!! She makes TWO fab things out of this!
I turned the top into a peplum with a high low hem. And the bottom...
...I turned it into a simple yoga skirt!
I couldn't be happier with how they turned out!
Any time you can get two pieces from one is A-OK in my book! I'm always a sucker for peplum and the skirt is perfect for a summer day. Keep the remakes coming, Mariss!! For more from Marissa, check her out HERE!
