I have this great project inspiration that requires gray t-shirt material. I had figured that I would need 2 men’s t-shirts, but just hadn’t gotten around to getting them.
When I was out shopping this week, (after my 5 week break…yay me!) I found this H&M dress for $4.
As you can tell, it’s PLENTY of material.
Even though it is my size, there is seriously enough room for a couple of me to get in.
But, I was seeing some potential
And I decided to wear it before slaughtering it.
Gray thread, a needle and 5 minutes, and this massive dress was a cute top.
So easy, a caveman could do it. I forgot to take pics of the actual process, but all I did was bunch up the sides to the length I wanted, and hand stitch on the inside.
Get a good look at it now, because hopefully by this time next week, it will be in pieces!
Top/Dress – H&M
Liquid Leggings – Walmart
Heels – Steve and Barry’s
Necklace – No clue
So, my challenge to you is, get something out of your closet that you don’t wear, and play with it. You may have a new fav right in your closet!
Cuuuuutte! Look at you wearing your crafty pants, man! love it 🙂

I gotta say… the before picture makes you look like an Olsen twin… yaknow, adorable hobo? Or maybe it's "trying to hide how anorexic you are". Either way, it's super cute!

So cute, Molly! Where did the tie about your waist come from? Did you add that part to?
Check you out!! That is so awesome! Can't wait to see that project you are working on!
You definitely made it way cuter. And you told me that you had no sewing skills. Girl, you are full of surprises!!!
LOVE that top you made. Genius! I am going to feature you today on my Friday Favorites. I love these!
You sure are crafty!!! I have no skillz with a needle & thread so I just stick to spending crazy amounts of cash on shirts! Damn Express!!!

haha that's cute and clever!!!
Girl, you are amazin! Love it!
SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUPER cute! I love this.
I came over to your blog for the first time today, and I really enjoyed it! ESPECIALLY the fashion tips. I have NO fashion sense and being a SAHM have little money to spend, so I really love your Fashion Fridays. Thanks for the wonderful posts, I went back and read all your Fridays posts from last year! Cooper is adorable, and I agree with you on Taye and Jesse:)
