Several years ago I picked up a beautifully embroidered dress at a thrift store.  I loved the embroidery, but didn’t like it as a dress.  I recently went to my parents house and saw the dress hanging in the closet and was inspired to finally put it to use.


I love wearing jeans so I wanted to convert the dress into a top that would look great with a pair of skinny jeans.  It was a pretty easy project since the dress already fit (so no resize was required).

Check out the video HERE to see how I did the reconstruction.


What type of reconstruction projects have you done or want to try?
