Slash & stitch your way to a brand new dress
So I whipped up a DIY studded dress to wear out last weekend! It’s easy, especially if you have an LBD to start with. All you need is a pair of scissors, some studded trim—I bought mine in the garment district, but you can check online trimming supply stores or Etsy—and about 2-3 hours.
