This image came from a magazine somewhere….I totally loved the airy summer feel of this outfit.

This lovely green dress and printed miumiu dress are what I have to work with.

And the end result….stay tuned…….


I found this frumpy, smarmy green dress for a $1.  With its pockets and bow tie neckline, I felt it had potential.

However, I sure wasn’t going to wear it outside like this!

I liked the neckline with its bow but wanted to update it abit.  I hiked up the hem and cut off the arms.  Added a black knit halter with a built in bra.  Pared it with a leather belt and black velvet pumps and found I had a rather Fab dress to go out in.

This is it!  This GIANT 4x dress started my upcycling obsession.  Can you see why?  I paid a whole buck for this thing at the local thrift store.  It was laying in a heap on the ground and somehow its beauty screamed at me.  It was the perfect item I had been looking for…..Kizmet!


With some doing, I eventually got it to look like this.  I’m in love!  Doesn’t the fabric look familiar??
