I’m sooo ready for it to be fall. Every year (right after July 4), I’m over summer. I want to bust out pumpkins and boots, but it’s still super hot outside. During this time I like to spruce up a few summer pieces and make them fall ready.
I wanted to take a few dresses to the next season with a little pop of color. Here’s how to get your stamp on.
You’ll need a stamp, fabric paint, and a solid colored article of clothing. I found this flower stamp at Michael’s in the sale bin for $1, you can score the fabric paint there too. I decided to use a plain old tee dress from Old Navy, I think this dress is like 3 years old.
You’ll also need something to separate the fabric. I find beer boxes especially useful for this.
When your dress/shirt is set up, test the stamp. Stamping with paint can be tricky. Grab a piece of paper and give the stamp a try, it will help you figure out how much paint and pressure to apply when stamping.
Get your stamp on! When the first side dries, flip it and stamp the other side. I went back after both sides were dry, and stamped along the side seams.
I also ended up adding a faux leather Peter Pan collar. I’m loving the look of this dress. I can wear it now with nudie flats, at the end of summer with boots and a lightweight cardi, and throughout fall with tights.
I paired my new dress with these sickening flats from Victoria’s Secret. I got them a few weeks ago on clearance for $39.99, they were regularly like $90. I’m obsessed with these shoes, I can’t wait to rock them with tights.
