With school and fall just around the corner, I decided to create a cool alternative to the plaid school jumper. It's a very inexpensive way to show off your unique style!

You will need:
one ugly dress
seam ripper
tape measure
matching thread
sewing machine

Step 1: Finding an ugly dress!

First thing, first...find an ugly dress.  I found my ugly dress at the local thrift store, but you can get one anywhere: your closet, your mom's closet, rummage sale, Goodwill, anywhere! 

I chose this dress because I liked the buttons going up the chest to the neck.  And there was enough of it to work with.

This has given me an idea to try on an outdated favorite of mine. Thanks.
What a beautiful result! Your instructions are great, too.
Cool idea and very pretty result.
Yes, well done!!
Well done :).
