I bought this dress from a thrift store because I loved the nude color, but I wasn't in love with the overly modest hemline. I've had this vintage bow pin my grandmpa gave me as a kid, and it was the perfect way to easily modernize the dress while adding a little drapery to the shape as well.
Step 1- Gather fabric from the outer sides of the front of the dress. Collect material slightly lower than the point in which you want to fasten your pin.
Step 2- Pull the fabric from one side over across your waist and then upward towards the point in which you'll pin the dress, repeat with the other side. You can overlap the sides or have them meet evenly in the middle, either technique will create pretty drapery.
Step 3- Pin your brooch through both sides and through the center of the dress so the sides don't sag in the middle.
Super easy, no sewing required, and you can swap out different pins for a new look every time you wear it!
