DIY dress

Hi! diy dress!

diy dress


Here is the dress! I attached the cute gingham mushroom stuff to a pretty "bra tank" that had a stain on it, and sewed on the pink woodgrain as a belt that ties in the back. I'm also wearing a pink woodgrain rosette :D

Afterthought: I would have made the belt thicker, that would probably be more flattering on my body. Also I love the top of the tank, which is why I didn't toss it, but it's too booby to ever have the cardigan unbuttoned. If anyone has tips on flattering looks for small high waists/ginormous butt&lovehandles I would love to hear them:D

Ed put this outfit together!

Ed looking delicious as usual, so effortless!

Thank you guys <3

Ash, All you really need to know is basting, that's how I made the rosette too. Baste and attach to a shirt :) Wish I was a tutorial making sort of person but it makes my brain hurt. You can bast without a machine too!

Adorable dress, I love the mushroom and the pink wood grain! I wear cute dresses with wedge flip flops, too. I like mobility without pain! As another curvy chick I like to:

-always define at the waist
-wear empire waist dresses
-medium length blazers/jackets because short ones just highlight problem areas.
-thicker fabric glides over curves, thin ones cling to unwanted areas. Better for the skinny gals who want the illusion of curves.
-always experimenting. I'm no fashion expert...
