Little Yellow Dress Refashion
I had to hurry up and finish this dress so I could enter it in the Around the World in 80 Dresses Challenge. This refashion didn't involve any drastic changes - but I did take it from unwearable to wearable. It started as this plain strapless dress (thrifted for $3):
I loved the pale yellow color and the detailed bottom trim but I don't do strapless. And unfortunately I didn't have any matching yellow fabric to make straps out of. So I went with a darker yellow for the straps. But then it definitely looked like I had added the straps - the darker color just stuck out and didn't look like it belonged. I made a few yo-yo's in the same darker yellow and tacked them onto the front - this seemed to help integrate the darker yellow color into the dress.
