Bling Up Your Plain Clothes

Hello my Creative Cherubs!

If you love to “bling up” plain clothes, then read on…

Personally, I love to buy plain dresses/t-shirts and embellish them, producing unique items of clothing๐Ÿ‘—. I do this a lot, so you can expect a lot of these posts in the future!!

I purchased a child’s plain, white cotton dress from Next. I think it was originally ยฃ10, but reduced to ยฃ5… Who doesn’t love a bargain?

Whilst this is a very pretty dress as it is, I wanted to add that something extra.

I added a flower made of beads and sequins. These were hand stitched individually to make them extra secure. I used my sewing machine to add a line of pink ribbon and white lace across the chest, to break up the dress.

Here is the finished dress:
