I went in my local Charity shop yesterday and actually found a print that I liked on a vintage dress - which was this 70's tropical print sundress;
It was just £1.50 - and although it was too big for me, and a shape/length that I wouldn't normally wear - I knew that I could alter it to fit. This is the before photo. It didn't have a tiered skirt - I cut it off then remembered that I hadn't yet taken a photo - d'oh!
And a close up of the print - tropical!
The top bit - I like the neckline and piping so just a few small alterations were needed;
1.I Sewed down the side seams and put darts in the back so the top is more fitted
2. The shoulders are drawstring, so I pulled them tight and tied in a bow
3. I hacked about a foot off the bottom, and hemmed the end
Accessorised with a waist cincher and its a perfect holiday sun dress in a more Clare style...not bad for £1.50 eh?
