Hello all! Today I have THREE refashions for you! That’s right 3! Check out these shoes I scored for $5:
What’s wrong with these shoes, you say? What the heck are you thinking, you say? Wellll I’m thinking…spray paint! That’s right. Spray paint! More on that later…
I liked this maxi but it was a bit long and frumpy. There was another dress but…well I have either misplaced the before pic or never took it. Either way it’s gone. 😦 Ugh I hate it when that happens! Sorry guys. I will describe it for you though. It was a soft, yellow, sleeveless dress. I think. I kind of think it might have been a nightgown but…Anyway it was pretty. The bodice was…erm…a bit tight for me so I cut it off and made a skirt. But wait a min!
This, my friends, is a picture of Melinda Gordon (Jennifer Love Hewitt) in Ghost Whisperer. I could not for the life of me find a better picture of this dress! I know it’s been awhile since Ghost Whisperer aired but the one thing I remember about that show is that the wardrobe was amazing! This dress inspired me to try it for myself.
As you can see, she is wearing a rather long, light blue, feminine dress that splits up the middle. Underneath are bloomers! What? Who wears those anymore? Melinda does! 😉 And look at those vintage shoes! LOVE them.
So the first thing I did was spray paint my shoes to white. I used regular spray paint which might have been a bad idea. I will find out and let you know. First you have to stuff the shoes with some sort of paper. Newspaper works best but all I had was some Christmas wrapping paper that worked just fine. Then just spray paint. It took about 3 coats to cover.
Then I made my bloomers. Remember the dress that I forgot to snap a before pic of? Well here’s the skirt part:
I used a pair of jeans to mark for the crotch. Then snipped:
Then I sewed all of the raw edges and added elastic to the waist. Done!
Next I disconnected the top from the other dress and created a skirt. I then cut it straight up the middle and surged the raw edges.
Put it all together and you have:
And the shoes:
I am in love with this one! A new twist to an old fashioned pair of underwear! 😉
