Dress Refashion

So I found this cute little dress at Wal-Mart. I was just passing through the clothing department and it grabbed my eye. I thought it was a cute little summer dress. When I got home and tried it on, it was a little short for my taste and a little plain.

So I dug through my scrape fabric stash and had just enough of some zebra print to add a little length.

The top of the dress has a cute lace around the neckline. But the waistline was missing something. It needed an additional touch too.

I just so happened to have enough fabric to make a belt as well. I didn't make it long enough to tie in a bow, so I formed a cute little flower instead. I think it turned out so cute.
And the final look. (Please excuse the unmade bed; I like to procrastinate!)
My only problem now is it has shrunk a little since I've washed it. So it's still a little short, but we will see if it will work.
Happy Wednesday!
