Thrifty Threads 365: one dress, multiple ways
There’s nothing I love more than wearing a single garment multiple ways. And that’s exactly what I have with this printed dress.

I immediately noticed the bold pattern when I saw it in a bin at the Goodwill Outlet. I wasn’t feeling the skirt, but knew I could have a tailor convert it into a strapless dress. I’ve worn it as a dress and now I’m rocking it as a skirt with the addition of a t-shirt and belt {both thrifted!}.
