grey flower dress

before

I got this dress a while ago while thrifting. There were so many things not wearable about this dress:

1. SUPER long, but short sleeves?!
2. grey boring color + boring pattern
3. it looks like a pillowcase
4. i look like a grandma >__>

So, I cut off at least 6 inches and took the extra fabric and sewed on leaves.

The end result?

This took way longer than I had estimated, but I think the finished product was worth it 🙂

If i have time (or get bored), I plan on drawing a line down the middle of the leaves to make them more leaf-like. I also probably could have spaced out the top leaves a bit more (+ironed) but oh well 😛
