Refashionista Day 5 - with Welcome to the Good Life

Today we have a refashion that will leave your jaw on the floor.  Sarah from Welcome To The Good Life is here.  I noticed Sarah's blog a couple of years ago when I was linking up with a lot of parties.  I would look through the links and be amazed by a refashion and it would be her's every time.  Sarah is drop dead gorgeous and super talented.  One thing I love about her blog is her honest attitude about life and motherhood.  Welcome Sarah!

Hello, I'm momma readers! I'm excited to be a part of this inspiring blog today. I'll be sharing a refashion project with you where I'll turn a thrift find dress into an origami peplum dress.  Hopefully after seeing my tutorial, you'll be inspired as well!

Here is the before/after picture:

I purchased this dress at a thrift store for $4.  At first glance I cringed a bit, but I saw the potential with the beautiful neon green/yellow color and the polka dot fabric, so I brought it home with a goal to make it not cringe-worthy.


*not pictured, but cut the bottom length of the dress as well and hem the bottom.

and you're done!



dress: thrift(DIY'ed) | colorblock t-strap heels: oasap

Thank you for having me Cheri!

The peplum design was inspired by this skirt
I did another thrift dress to a peplum dress here.

Thanks so much, Sarah!  I told you guys you'd be impressed.  I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have seen the awesome potential in that thrifted dress.  Wow.  If you haven't been to Sarah's site be sure to head over HERE to scroll through her amazing DIYs.  You won't be disappointed.  I promise.
