Flipped | Men’s Jeans to Dress {DIY}

There’s one thing I don’t have in my closet, and that’s a denim dress. I’ve never purchased one because they are either too pricey, not the right wash, or the style is not flattering.

So I cut up my hubby’s jeans… and I have a new dress.

If you’re like me and need one for the Fall, then go find yourself a men’s pair of jeans and make this dress. This wrap dress can be worn may different ways in any season. Wear a pair of tights under it and beat the cold weather. I found a beautiful inspirational shot on The Satorialist.

I’ll post the tutorial tomorrow. Tutorial is up!
By the way, I’ll further ‘edit’ this dress for a guest post on another blog. Stay connected: Facebook | Twitter.

I’m wearing:
Dress: Gap Men’s Jeans flipped to Dress
Belt: My mommy’s

    Whitney, your g-grandmother would be VERY proud of you for carrying on the gift.

    Do your thing child–with your BAD SELF!

    How cute is this?? I love the shape and simplicity with the fade on the denim. Also, not part of the sewing but I have to copy your backwards-belt idea… you are so creative!

    • Whitney

      Thank you Lindsay. When I put the belt on it seemed backwards was the only way to do it. Haha. I even forgot it was backwards until I read your comment.

    This is genius! I love the asymmetry, the way you layered the denim, and the shoulders are great too!
