I want to give you my number one rule when thrift shopping for clothes. If you find something that is too big or WAYY to big it is sooo NOT a problem. In fact in some ways, it can be better . Take this dress I found on Wednesday. It was a size 14 and way too long but I liked it's beachy look.
Not every thrift store dress needs a total makeover. Sometimes all you have to do to have a great find and a great bargain is a little tweaking.
First I turned it inside out and put in on. Then I pinned along the sides to fit my shape, and took it off. Then made one quick line of stitches on either side. Then I cut 6 inches off the bottom and used the extra fabric to make a matching belt around the waist.
Voila! A new perfectly sized dress for only $2.
