Anthropologie is one of our main sources for clothing, apartment decor, and — drumroll — DIY inspiration. When it comes to renewing your closet on a budget, we’re always up for the challenge. First, we created this Anthro-inspired chambray shirt, then we DIYed a $148 bow dress for a fraction of the price, and now we’re here to show you how to make a cute dress inspired by this Eri + Ali One-Shoulder Dress ($148).
Whether your style is trendy and sophisticated or cute and easy, we can guarantee this DIY will help to pull off any look on a budget.
Materials and Tools:
1. Wear the dress and use the pins to indicate where you want to cut out the dress.
2. Use the tailor’s chalk to draw a solid line.
3. Cut, following the line you’ve just drawn.
4. Double fold the hem and pin it in place. Then sew, using your sewing machine.
First, wear your old boring dress and use the pins to indicate where you want to cut out the dress. Next, use the tailor’s chalk to draw a solid line like shown above. Now cut, following that line. Finally, double fold the hem to create a crisp edge, pin it in place, and sew. Ta-dah! Your brand new one-shoulder dress is done!
When it’s warm outside, I like to wear this dress with a simple pair of nude ballet shoes for a comfy, casual look. When it gets a bit chillier, I love to layer a cute blazer or a neutral trench for a classier ensemble.
