DIY: One Shoulder Wrap Dress

Images via FabSugar

One big trend on this years Oscars red carpet was bare shoulders. Who would have guess that when I stepped out of my house to attend Us Weekly Magazine Oscar viewing party I was on trend?

Believe it or not my dress for the evening only cost $10. Yep, that’s right…$10!! I picked up 2 yards of fabric from a fabrics store downtown and with a simple (and no sew) wrap trick I created my look for the night. I paired my statement Crux earrings, a ring from H&M and my Louboutins. The photographer cut off my shoes a little but trust me I was giving some serious right leg action. Angies wasn’t the only one!

To honor of this years Best Picture winner The Artist, here’s a little how to silent video showing you just how easy it is to make this dress.

This process is simple: 1.) Pick out about 2 yards of your favorite fabric 2.) Wrap the fabric around you pulling the left end underneath your right arm. Pull it very tight so that there’s o draping. 3.) Tie both ends into a bow over your right shoulder to secure

I had so much fun showing off my fun and easy flowy dress on the carpet. A great thing about this look is that you can transform it to whatever event you’re attending by just simply purchasing a new piece of inexpensive fabric. Maybe use a haute pink fabric and rockΒ  it with a pair of gold sandals for those summer time cook outs. Who doesn’t love a quick and easy maxi dress during the Summer? Just be sure to wear a strapless dress underneath for fabrics that might be too sheer.

  5. This fabric looks so much like one of the Thakoon for Target skirts. I love the thought of pairing it with neon pink.
