As you might know, I don’t wear mini dresses. So when I’m shopping, it’s majorly annoying to find and fall in love with a mini dress in a gorgeous pattern or color, cause throwing on a pair of leggings underneath it totally changes the look for me, and not usually in a good way. 

So I was thinking about this annoying situation a few weeks ago, and then I ran across this pin that I’d pinned ages ago and it sparked an idea. Instead of fighting the mini dress, how about I just make it work for me? An easy chop and hem, and suddenly it’s a darling hi-low top that doesn’t alter the gorgeous print, and doesn’t look silly with leggings. 

Such was the case with this darling dress from Lulu*s. A quick refashion and now it’s one of my favorite tops that looks amazing with jeans, shorts, or even a pencil skirt. 

Here’s how I styled it, and a super easy tutorial is at the end of this post!look3

This tutorial doesn’t work for every mini dress, but it works for many of them, especially shift dresses that have one color or print all over the dress, like mine. I would love to try it with this navy and white graphic print dress, this amazing neon and mint dress, or even this navy contrast sleeve dress! What do you think??

Tunic Tutorial

Step 1. Start with a mini dress. Try it on and determine the length you want to cut in the front. Add half an inch for seam allowance and mark or pin this spot. Do the same for the back.
Step 2. Lay it profile, flat on the ground, and cut according to your pin marks, making it a hi-low hem.
Step 3. Hem.

(note: mine had a lining, so I did the exact same steps, just making it about an inch shorter on all sides so it didn’t show).
