I found this dress at a local thrift store for $1.

I had high hopes for this dress. And honestly, I can't even remember what I did to it. Something about shortening, separating the top, folding, criss-crossing, and loop-de-looping material, and placing buttons at weird places on the inside to hold it all together.
Anyway, here's the transformation:
I became WAY too ambitious with this one. It may look nice in the photo, but it was a mess underneath. And it felt awful while I wore it.
I have a rule for myself that I have to wear everything I make at least once. I broke the rule with this one. I only wore it long enough to take the picture, then I literally ripped it off of me. Good thing it was only a dollar, right?
Sometimes simpler is better. And I thank God for grace, that I don't have to be perfect in everything I do :)
Until next time, blessings.
