I like versatility in my clothing and accessories, because they’re great for combining and mixing and matching outfits. For someone who’s always on a budget, that’s a great feature for any item in my closet. So this DIY Empire Waist Little Black Dress was the perfect addition because it’s also a swimsuit coverup.
Then again, sometimes I’ll just throw on a cute dress over my bikini because it’s comfortable.
This dress is so easy to make also! I used the pink crocheted fabric from my swimsuit cover up/sweater dress (see–versatility) and it turned out to be the perfect combination. The black fabric is a swimsuit material that I picked up from the remnants section at Jo-Ann’s, but I wasn’t really in the mood to make a bikini when I’m already obsessed with buying them.
So you guys all get a dress tutorial instead!
