Up-cycling My Lime Green Mini Dress

Lime green is my favorite colour and I didn't have any fashion pieces in lime green pieces because I was reluctant to wear this colour because I thought bright colours wouldn't compliment my complexion but boy was I wrong!. Last year I was the bravest version of myself and I went for the risk by creating a mini bodycon beach dress in a lime green fabric.

Lime Green Mini Bodycon Dress

The dress came out perfect and I loved it because it added to my complexion; making me glowww!!

Recently I picked this dress up from my closet to wear to summer school and realized that it was now too short for me, I immediately had the idea to change this dress into a cute unique crop top (but not too crop). 

  • First I cut off the straps and plaited 3 of them
  • After I cut the body (from the waist down to the hem) of the dress into a square like shape
  • Then I shaped the square into crop vest; cutting the necklines and arm holes
  • Finally I thread my machine and sewed the pieces together; attaching the plaited piece to the neckline and doing any adjustments necessary 

Final Product!
