Unless you're one of the lucky ones sporting limited edition designer dresses this summer, then you're probably like me; trying to make the best of some seasonal favorites from the typical mall retailers. You may even be one of the few who are flattered by these trendy colors and fits. If you are then you're off to enjoy the sunshine feeling pretty fabulous; until you spot that same dress on three other people in the same afternoon.
Suddenly you're not feeling so fashionable. Melissa over at fehr TRADE offers an inventive solution with her resourceful use of untraditional material paired with classic patterns. Melissa looks stunning in the shots pictured here of her shower curtain dress. Next time you see some interesting fabric on a pillowcase or tablecloth, consider crafting a whole new piece. Melissa inspires us to look at fabrics through an inventive lens and opens up a whole new world of do it yourself Haute Couture. For those of us not quite brave enough to try the shower curtain dress with intricate pink piping and waist band details, why not make a cool new headband or a stylish belt to spice up an old favorite?
