I did something today I’ve never dared before; I took scissors to an old denim dress…and turned it into this sleeveless coat!!
The dress was cute as it was – with long button-tab sleeves – but as my regular readers know by now, I’m always very uncomfortable wearing anything that feels even a little constricted…and a denim shirtdress is definitely not stretchy!!
Of course, I’ll still be able to wear it on its own, too (buttoned up, of course!); but this time I wanted to use it as a layering piece to give my simple slip dress a bit more coverage and interest. It worked well, don’t you think?!
Unfortunately, my footwear options continue to be rather limited – a lot of my most favourite pairs won’t fit over my DVT-induced swelling – but these Nine West Vintage America boots managed to make the cut; and (as usual!) I liked that bit of added “toughness” they gave to my look.
Have you ever attempted a DIY project with an item from your wardrobe?? Please let me know how it turned out!!
