D-I-Y Hi-Lo Maxi Dress

Hi beauties:

Today's post is completely different than any other post I've ever done. I wanted to share a bit of my creative energy with you. I am a finance professional which explains all the reasons I need to find ways to keep my creative energy alive!

This season is all about the 'hi-lo' look. Everywhere you look there's a hi-low dress, shirt/blouse, skirt and so I was inspired to create my own hi-low maxi dress.

Remember when floor-sweeping maxi dresses were the hottest thing around and so you went out and bought loads? Well do you still wear them? If not, don't throw them out. Get creative and re-vamp them.

C'mon, I'll show you how.

Tools of the trade ;)
A pair of scissors and a white pencil

You'll definitely need a maxi dress
This is a simple smock top maxi

Maxi before

STEP 1: Fold the dress in half in the opposite direction
STEP 2: Mark the dress where you want to cut the hi-low style
STEP 3: Cut along the dotted line

Ta da! Maxi after
Pretty simple huh?

There we go!
Simple and cute!

So go on! Get creative and let me see your style!
