Guest Post: Sara from Road to the Heart...

Hello readers of Beebee's Vintage Dress!  I'm Sara of Road to the Heart. While I love sewing things from scratch, sometimes it's just as much fun to buy something from the thrift store and alter it to be wearable.  Here's my most recent project!

I found this dress at Goodwill, and it was huge.  I felt like a child when I put it on for this before photo:

Swimming in pink!
But I thought it had potential because of the pretty peach color and the pleated texture.  So I cut the skirt part off, folded over the top, and added a drawstring waist.  And suddenly, it was the perfect beach outfit!

Thanks Stevie for letting me guest post!  If you want to see more upcycled fashions or vintage musings, feel free to hop over to my blog to say hi.  Happy sewing!


  1. Jest świetna,nie tylko na plażę.

    Zapraszam do siebie, organizuje konkurs w którym nagrodami są ciuszki zaprojektowane przez mnie samą.

  2. Sara makes the most ridiculous dress wearable in a heartbeat! I always feel so inspired reading her posts. Too bad I have absolutely no talent for sewing. :(

  3. I was trying to imagine how you might go about altering that. If I had a sewing machine, I know there've been quite a few pieces I wanted to alter myself. (:

  4. the color is so pretty! I'm glad you made it into a skirt, it looks fabulous!

  5. You really have to think outside of the box to see potential in that thrift shop find! It turned out fabulous!

  6. That's so fun and flowy - a great up-cycle! Now I'm wondering if you can get creative with the top part of the dress and make that into something too?

  7. super cute :D



I love reading what you have to say!
