I purchased this brand new chambray dress from Goodwill for $4 a few months ago...and yesterday I finally mustered up enough motivation to alter it.
Dress: thrifted, $4
Shoes: Rack Room, $15
I shortened the dress by about 5 inches and used the excess fabric to make a waist tie, because I didn't like the wiry, tasseled one that came with it.
This took less than an hour. Yet it took me 4 months to get around to it...what does that say about my time management skills? Hmm.
