DIY No-Sew Slip Dress…

I was inspired by this post from One of Each Blog in December, so this is my no-sew version!

1. Start with a maxi skirt, I got mine at RiteAid for $10 (I told you I can shop anywhere), It never fit me right, (surprised?) but I love the colors and the fabric.
2. Lay flat and cut off the waistband
3. Lay a tank top or sports bra that fits you over the skirt to get an idea of the sleeve placement and cut triangles off the corners- trim a few inches below where the sleeves of your tank top or sports bra fall. I trimmed more off than shown in the photos, I indicated my final sleeve with purple lines. I did triangles instead of half moons because with a traditional half moon sleeve cutout the right angle was sticking out under my arm like wings. The triangle shape makes the sleeve holes deeper resulting in needing to wear a bikini top or bralette for side-boob coverage. Also, make sure you make the straps long enough so that you have enough fabric to tie them together.
4. Cut out the neck and back, trim it until it has the shape you want.
5. Tie sleeve straps together in a double knot.
6. Enjoy loose, or
7. Use elastic waistband as belt…
Or Use any belt of your choice

  3. I pretty much love everything at Oia Jules. But I think the one I would choose right now is the Gold Plated Druzy Agate & Gold Curb Chain Necklace

  4. I am totally loving the leather wrap bracelet with the pink stone and the rose gold chunky chain bracelet is soo cute too! thanks for this awesome giveaway! <3

  5. I love everything in the Oia Jules Jewellery store! I just received the Purple Mohave Turquoise Bezel Necklace and a Dainty Purple Druzy Gold Chain Bracelet in the mail today!

    If I won, I would buy one of her gorgeous chunky bracelets. Maybe the Chunky Silver Chain Link Bracelet with Bright Pink Agate or the Chunky Gunmetal Link Bracelet with Magenta Agate or the Chunky Gold Link Bracelet with Amethyst Stone.

    Your dress is adorable. Super cute way to recycle a maxi skirt. Thanks for the giveaway! xoxo

  6. Everything in the Oia Jules shop is SO pretty. I want it all! But if I won I think I’d get the leather wrap bracelet with turquoise agate stone. Love it.

  7. Oia Jules jewelry is absolutely stunning! Love the earthy touch to luxurious pieces! Totally eyeing the chunky chain necklaces. Keeping my fingers crossed that I get lucky! Have been drooling over her Etsy shop for a while now… :-P

  8. Hey! This looks like such a great idea! I was wondering, since I can sew should I hem the edges of the dress so it doesn’t fray or did you not find an issue with it?

  9. This just saved an old skirt I had from going off to GoodWill!! I had been looking in the stores to find a great cover up to wear on our vacation to FL now I don’t have to buy one!! Thank you so very much!

  10. This DIY is so creatively perfect! ! I’m definitely doing this! (Being that this is how I was introduced to your blog in the first place from a Pinterest pin! !
