Revival Files: Chevron

Total Cost = $6

I saw this dresses and even though it was a complete mumu sack I just could not get over the chevrons. Sometimes I pick up a dress because I see a cute little dainty dress dying to be set free, and other times I just see a big 'ol sack with really cool fabric. This was the latter, but I actually really like how it turned out. I took in the dress on the sleeves and sides and then gave it some darts in the back to give it some shape, and of course made a new hemline. Mama likey.

*Remember this lavendar goodness revival files that I made for a wedding? Well the wedding has come and gone and it is now up for sale for $35! It's a M/L (which I know is vague but it's SUPER stretchy and giving) if you want it shoot me an email!

  5. I love your revivals! :) I see stuff like this at my local thrift stores often, but without the sewing skills, I just look at them and get sad, haha! But this a super cute one!

    Question: How much is shipping on the items in your shop? :)
