It’s rare that we come across duplicate dresses, but when we do it gives us freedom to experiment with different ideas! I did a post last year showing how you can update an overlooked thrift store dress into something chic & modern, so I thought I’d try for Part 2 of “How To Transform Any Dress…”. We got our hands on identical 1960s floral/heart print long sleeve maxi dresses, I immediately fell in love with the color combination and intricate print work:
We decided to transform each dress into a different style. For the first dress, we took the sleeves off and left the skirt floor length. For the second dress, we kept the sleeves long, shortened the skirt to a mini length, and then took the bottom tier of the original skirt and attached it to the mini skirt, I didn’t want to lose the signature heart print at the bottom! Marlene and Kalia are modeling the two different version below:
So my question is, which dress do you prefer? I can’t decide! We sold the long dress a few months back, but the short dress can be found at our store right now! I hope you enjoy this post as much as we enjoyed playing with different ideas, I’d love to hear what you have to say so please leave a comment!
