Refashion: H&M Floral Blouse

I found a sweet floral shift dress (similar to this one) on sale at H&M over the summer. It was marked $7 with a 'take an extra 50% off lowest marked price' tag. Even though the dress was too short for me and hugged my bum a little too snugly, I was in love with the print, and even more in love with the price.

I took it to the counter at which point the employee rang it up for $7 & proceeded to try to tell me the tag meant either half off the original price or the lowest marked price. I tried to explain what a discount off the lowest marked price actually meant. It was a losing battle. Was I really working that hard to save $3.50? On principle, I was. But I let it go, because the dress was worth $7 to me. I still shake my head at that poor employee that really didn't understand what was going on. I wanted to pat him on the head and say, numbers are hard, huh?*

Anyway. I brought that shift dress home and chopped off the skirt. I gave it a curved hem, and I think it turned out pretty well.

What do you think?

Have you refashioned anything lately? Leave a link so we can all check it out!

*I would never actually do such a thing, I just have a very snarky personality in my head.


  1. I love the print and that you made it your own! It looks great paired with that skirt too, now that temps are starting to cool down.

  2. Great job. Turned out cute. Funny story too!

  3. Turned out great! I love how you're not scared to buy something that doesn't fit perfectly, knowing you can refashion it!

  4. I seriously wish you were my neighbor or something. I always think to myself while shopping, I should buy this cause I love the pattern or color or whatever and refashion it. But I never do. Or I do and I never do it cause I am a terrible sewer.
    Just so jealous of your mad skills!!
