Erica's NDAD Creation

The fabric in this dress just called out to me!  I'm such a fan of the pink/orange/red color palette and think it's a fabulous way to ring in the summer!

This is my mom's dress from the 70's that I recently pulled out of my old bin of dress up clothes from when I was little.  I've wanted a maxi dress for the summer, but never really found one that I loved in stores.

What will Erica do to make her mom's dress work for her?

I revamped this by replacing the dead/stretched out elastic and sewing up a few holes!  The dress was huge and sloppy before, and just replacing the elastic made it fit perfectly!

Voila--a way better maxi dress than any I've tried on!  The elastic cost a whopping $0.75.

Way to repurpose that piece of your mom's, Erica!  It's the quintessential summer dress and I think you should totally rock it with hat in the lower left corner of your after shot!  Can't wait to see what else you dig up from that bin of dress up clothes!

Happy Weekend, friends!
