Any thrifter knows the feeling of spending hours mindlessly combing through the racks of stranger's unwanted clothes -- then screeching too a halt suddenly when you find "the one."
In my case, "the one," was a lace hi-low hem dress from Free People.
It was boho, it was chic, it was everything I wanted. Except for the fact that it also had a multi-colored acrylic paint stain near the front hem that horribly stood out on this otherwise white dress.
So many questions came to mind, like "why was someone painting in THIS dress?" Whatever happened, it doesn't matter. What matters is now to how make the dress wearable, and keep it out of the landfill.
Enter watercolor tie-dye for the win.
