[UPDATE: you can find the tutorial for this dress here]
I love thrift stores, there’s always so much potential to upcycle things, sometimes you don’t even need to. But I love to change things around
When I moved from Chile I could not bring all of my clothes, and since I moved when it was winter in California, my summer wardrobe is very small, so to solve it, I went to the thrift store in my small little town and got about 20 pieces of clothes for about $35.00 (I say good deal!!) And I’m going to share with all of you all of the things I’m going to upcyled, and hopefully someone else will get inspired in the process.
This fist upcycling is a 6XL men’s shirt that I will transform into a summer dress, I know sometimes is hard to find big shirts, but I am pretty tall, so I needed the biggest one I could find.
I know some of you might be wondering if this pictures are old because of my hair, the answer is nop! I just got to play around with extensions I bought about 4 years a go for a pageant, I had very short hair then too, so now it comes handy and I can remember what it felt like to have long hair again
