Ugly Dress to Cute Top

I bought this very out of date dress at Goodwill and saw the potential for something cute. When I go into dressing rooms I pull the dress up to shirt height to look how it might look. I noticed that the dress would make a cute loose fitting tank top. I enjoyed the pattern and colors, it matches what’s pretty popular right now, it just needed some help.

I put the dress on and mark with a safety pin where I like my shirts to hit on my body length wise.

After I found the length I added an inch for the hem. Next I cut the dress and pinned the hem down so I could put it through my machine using a blind hem stitch.

The straps were far to wide for me so I took a strip of fabric and turned it inside out then sewed a strip. I turned it right side out then wrapped it around the straps to bunch them up. I ran it through my machine so it would not slide around.

I had taken a dress that was 50% off at Goodwill making it only $3 to make a cute inexpensive shirt. You never know what you’ll find while hunting!

Bing Rewards

I’ve been using Bing for a few years now so I don’t have to hardly pay for anything on Amazon anymore. It only takes a few minutes a day to earn points and cash out for gift cards.

Sign up and make an account with any e-mail you already own. Next download the app on your phone so you can also collect mobile rewards.

Everyday go on the computer and earn the extra points then do the 30 searches pretty fast. For every 2 searches you earn a point. Then go on your mobile device and do the 20 searches to earn your 10 points.

Depending on the extra credit you can earn each day you could have $5 for Amazon every 3 weeks. There are other gift cards you can cash out on but I think Amazon is the most useful.

This is not a get rich scheme and it takes time to earn up the cash but it’s worth it when you can save money on your everyday purchases.
