Too Short Dress Makeover

do it yourself

I bought this adorable used handmade dress on eBay. It was a bit long for my liking so I took the scissors to it. The dress has a circle skirt so it was challenging to hem & I ended up taking too much off leaving me with too short of a dress. The solution? Eyelet lace trim!

I bought the widest trim I could find to give the skirt the extra length it needed. It worked out perfectly! I was afraid the white would stand out too much but it looks nice with the tiny white contrast stripes in the plaid. I really love the color combo.

The dress is a bit big for me size wise but a belt definitely helps. The person who made it even included belt loops :)

Share the love!
