Friend of Yay! DIY, Chad, brought this fabulous site to our attention yesterday (and ladies, he’s single…call him) – and a full 24 hours later we’re still in the throes of obsession.
Los Angeles-based Marisa started “New Dress a Day” while in the midst of a creative funk. Her mission? Take her favorite hobby of scouring vintage stores for fabulous pieces to supplement her wardrobe and add one big twist: forgo all regular shopping and instead, create a new dress every day based on these thrifty finds. That means muumuus, nightgowns, oversized shirts, even pants – all get turned into fabulous pieces. And they are fabulous! And that’s not all – she’s limited herself to $365 for the entire project – so each outfit can only cost a buck!
Follow Marisa and her year-long adventure over at New Dress A Day! And look out for a special “11 Questions for Crafty People” with Marisa soon. Personally, this is exactly the inspiration I needed to learn to use this sewing machine once and for all!
