How I Oomphed my 50 rs (0.8$) Dress

This article written a year ago, back in Febraury 2017 went off the radar and out of the blue, I found it today. While I ponder how I forgot to post, you guys take a look at it.

Do it yourself dress

Let me take you back to December 2015 when I was holidaying with my boyfriend in the so called Hippie Island in Hampi, Karnataka. ATM’s in Hampi ran out of cash the last day of our trip. So we dug into each other’s wallet to gather what little we had. To our surprise we had just enough money for a meal and to take a local bus ride to bus stand. That evening while strolling the street filled with many artifacts, souvenir and clothes stores this dress caught my attention and the price tag was shocking. Though it was hard I gave up on the last glass of lemon ginger tea to buy this dress. Let me tell it loud that I paid only 50 inr (0.8$) for it. I dint bargain neither was the dress torn nor used.

Fast Forward to December 2016 when I was packing for a long trip to North India this dress was silently peeping out of my closet. Pom Pom dresses were doing rounds in the fashion industry and the Pom Pom accessories were the talk of the town. Why not oomph up this dress with some pom pom I thought. So I simply stitched some pom pom to the dress.

Materials Required

  • Pom Pom ( I bought from Itsy Bitsy store paying 20 inr)
  • Needle
  • Thread
  • Hair Band
  • Shirt Button (Optional. I used my dad’s old shirt button)

I still had few Pom Pom left. I stitched it to my hair band and it also doubled up as a hand bracelet.
