Vintage and Thrift: DIY From Thrifted Dress to Tunic Top

Can you believe I made this top in ten minutes.  This is the quickest DIY project. It's simple. Choose a dress and cut away! No sewing involved. Just cut the sides and make sure all the edges are cleanly cut.  I purchased this dress at a Goodwill Powder $3.95. It's been sitting in my closet for over a year.  I love the pattern but the dress was too tight around the hips.  My sister in thrift, Troy of The Thriftanista In The City gave me this DIY idea to cut the sides of the dress and wear it as a cute top.  

DIY Dress to a top: Goodwill Powder Springs: $3.95
Black Sweetheart Jeans (New) from Old Navy: $12.00
Red Baker Pumps: Smyrna Thrift Shop: $5.00
