[Dress makeover]

The amazing thing about this tutorial- you won’t need to make the dress from scratch, which can be “painful” even for professionals among us. Pick you favorite, maybe way to short dress and upgrade it with 3 layers of fine tulle fabric. The short bottom of the dress turns into lining and the mini dress turns into an evening gown. Trendy and decent, sort of…

      Hi Clara,
      I would say you will need around 3-4 hours. For the tulle fabric I spent around 15 euro. And the dress was already in my closet.
