I am so thankful to have teamed up with blogger Marisa Lynch of A New Dress A Day to revamp an old, boxy vintage dress I found in an LA Boutique into one I’d actually love to wear. Marisa is known for revamping a new vintage dress every day for $1.00 and she then posts her revamped creations on her blog–constantly inspiring her readers.  She’s a recessionista extraordinaire who is really making a mark by demonstrating you can really make something amazing out of any old garment–even if it starts out looking like an old rag. I feel so lucky that Marisa was kind enough to help me figure out my own sewing machine for my first sewing session…not too shabby!
