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 clothing👗. 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 £10, but reduced to £5… 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.
For extra detail, I used pink embroidery thread to chain stitch around the neckline. I also added chain stitch, sequins and beads along the two “flaps” at the bottom of the dress.
Here is the finished dress:
I know it’s nothing amazing but I feel it adds that personal touch to an otherwise plain dress. The photograph doesn’t do it justice, it looks really pretty in person.
