DIY: back button-up dress

This is one amazing DIY from the talented Geneva from A Pair and a Spare. She found the dress in a thrift shop (if only I could find something this fab in a thrift shop) and completely altered it to make it more modern! Find the instructions on her blog.

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment!
I love checking out your blogs as well, so if you leave a comment I will come visit your blog sometime soon :)
However, I firmly believe that you should follow a blog because you feel inspired, not as part of a follow-for-follow deal. I will NEVER respond to "want to follow each other" requests.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts!
