Turn Your Maxi Into A Cocktail Dress

You still love that maxi dress, but it needs a revamp. Why not turn it into a cocktail dress? All you need is聽Scotch鈩 Essentials Adjustable Hem Tape聽and a pair of fabric scissors.

NEW-Maxi-Part-1

Put on the dress and mark the length you want to cut it. Then add an inch for the hem. Cut the dress, turn it inside out and then add the tape.

NEW-maxi-part-2

Cover the length of the hem with tape. Press the fabric firmly together to seal the tape and then flip it right side out.

Maxi-Before-and-After

Finish the look with chic jewelry and a pair of heels.

Add a Pocket to Your Tee

Stripes will never go out of style. And neither will pockets. Put them together and we get an adorable shirt with a pop of color.

NEW-pocket

Cut out a pocket and fold over the edges. Add three聽Scotch鈩 Essentials聽Wardrobe Tape Strips聽and adhere the pocket to your shirt.

Pocket-Final-Marisa

Pair these with some jungle shorts and you鈥檙e ready for summer.

Pro tip: If you want your pocket and hem to stay put forever, you can make the tank and the cocktail dress with聽Scotch鈩 Essentials Permanent Hem Bonding Tape.聽The聽Scotch鈩 Essentials聽Wardrobe Tape Strips聽are removable, so they are perfect if you want to make your hem adjustable or wear your tank without the pocket sometimes.

Put a Pan Collar on Your Blouse

The pan collar adds a little bit of whimsy to your sophisticated outfit. Get a patterned blouse and then add a leather collar with聽Scotch鈩 Essentials聽Wardrobe Tape Strips.

Pan-Collar-Part-1

Place your collar fabric on top of your blouse. Draw your pan collar making sure that it will fit the shirt.

Pan-Collar-Part-2

Cut it out and then adhere it to the blouse with聽Scotch鈩 Essentials聽Wardrobe Tape Strips.

Add聽Scotch鈩 Essentials Permanent Hem Bonding Tape聽to the sides and then fold the clutch in half and press them together. Fold over the top flap and then add a聽Scotch鈩 Essentials聽Easy Fix Button聽as an enclosure.

Shorten Your Straps

Hate it when your straps slide off your shoulders?
