sometimes when i'm thrifting, i may find an item that is not my size or needs a new purpose. and if the price is right, i'll bring it home and make it into something else. i was able to find this long, gold dress for $5.00. i was ok with the color but not crazy about the turtleneck and decided to purchase it with the hope of it being refashioned into something else. let me just say, my sewing skills are very basic, but i was able to transform this dress into a strapless one + a maxi skirt.
