Make an ordinary dress sweeter

Posted by Robin M. Published

  • Step 1

    I bought this dress at a thrift store for $8, and it was just a plain white cotton jersey dress.

    Then I bought some pink and white vegan fabric paint from JoAnn Fabrics and mixed them together to get the perfect pink color that I liked best.

    I started by using chalk to draw the drips onto the dress to make sure I liked them, and then I painted, following my chalk lines (make sure you put a plastic garbage bag or something else between the 2 layers of the dress, so the paint won't leak through to the other side).

    I let it dry for a few hours, and then I painted a second layer of paint over the areas that still looked a little see-through.

    After drying for 24 hours, I hand sewed some tiny beads onto the pink areas to mimic sprinkles.
