Re-fashion a Maxi Dress + Necklace DIY

I bought this maxi dress which makes me look like a burrito :

refashion maxi dress before look


Whichever way I turn, my shape doesn’t change.  However, when the length is shortened, it becomes totally wearable :


To find the length, I put on the dress and mark where I want the hem to land. Since this is a medium weight fabric, I wanted the hem to be thicker to match the style.  I added 6 more cm to get a 5 cm hem. For thinner fabric, like cami-style ones, maybe 2-3 cm is enough.  There’s also a necklace diy in the tutorial. It’s just sewing a cord onto the costume jewelry thingie. Today’s tutorial is extremely easy !

Enjoy !
