Iffy by Melissa

 

 

Button-up: Madewell (similar) | T-shirt: Shade Clothing | Skirt: Madewell (similar) | Shoes: J.Crew (very similar!)
To be honest, I am not quite sure what I was thinking here. Was it “How many patterns can I fit in ONE outfit?” or “I am going to pick blindly from the closet and just put it on.” Maybe it was “I am going to be wearing camo for the next month – get in all other patterns while you still can.” Whatever it was, I still thought it was pretty fantastic till about half way through the day. Then it was more like, “What am I wearing?!?” Anyone else feel iffy about their outfit choices as the day ends?

How To Make a Colorblock Dress from T-Shirts by Kristina

Sometimes a favorite piece is just too comfortable to throw away. I didn’t want to get rid of my perfect fit tee from the GAP so I decided to up-cycle three extra large men’s polo shirts from Goodwill to create a dress inspired by this colorblock dress.
Chic Girl’s Tip: Anytime you plan to up-cycle jersey knit pieces, wash and dry the clothes before cutting them for your projects. For this project, I used the largest shirt as the bottom layer and smallest for the top to make sure the shape of the skirt portion was a-line.
