As you know, Noa and I love shopping thrift for the most unique items to trim and tweak and make our own. And this baby was no different... except it was so easy. (And nothing makes me happy like easy!)
How cute is this little sixties number? The built-in belt and bold print had me at hello.
But like all diamonds in the rough, it needed some help. (But not much!)
A simple hem to take off the unflattering length, and I had myself a new little mini dress!
Quick tip for the sewing challenged: You can hand sew a loose hem with needle and thread on the underside of a garment. Just leave a little extra fabric and fold it under. That way if you mess it up, or go too short, you can easily tear it out.
Paired with some easy accessories; aviators, a braided belt worn as a headband, (also seen here as a belt) and slouchy Aldo ankle boots, I've discovered a new favorite look!
Mad love xx
