ROFL

I find almost impossible not to alter everything I buy, whether its adding different buttons, making t-shirts into dresses, making dresses into skirts. It means I'm left with a pile of half finished clothes and lots of good intentions. This time I actually managed to finish one of the many DIY projects I start.
Mammy came home, with a great, cheap dress from Penney's. Perfect for the Christmas party season, black with a cream frill/ruffle thing down the front. First of all I had to change the horribly cheap looking buttons on it, great buttons are no longer hard to find thanks to Rubenesque. After Christmas it just seemed like I was never going to wear the dress again. So I decided to take off the ruffle/frill bit so it could be added to other outfits like so,

Really must educate myself with a needle and thread, am tired of some of the buttons on my blazers. Also, your innovation consistently puts me to shame!

What a great idea! And I remember when that dress was in Penneys...

Cillian we'll teach you. Buttons are the easiest thing in the world to sew and a great way to make something cheap from Penneys look much classier
