A DIY Grad

Just a quick post on my graduation dress and my first brush with DIY:

The dress was a lovely $5 find from the thrift store (the tag says it's from Express), but it originally was just the strapless dress and a bit longer. With one day before graduation, I felt like the dress wasn't quite special enough for the occasion, so I hemmed my dress to above my knee and bought a $4 scarf from Wet Seal in this pretty green tone that matched the pattern on my dress. I cut up the scarf and sewed a few rosettes on the front waistline and twisted part of it to make a strap.
