A crafty Kmart customer left her fellow social media users stunned after sharing a dress she made only with $ 1.50 tea towels from the discount store
Avid sewer worker Selika from Melbourne, VIC wowed TikTokers with a video showing how she constructed the cute fit and flare dress from 11 cockatoo print cotton tea towels she bought from Kmart
“I love prints and I was sure I could make a nice dress out of them,” she told Yahoo Lifestyle
After carefully unchecking the seams of each of the tea towels, Selika used Rosery Apparel’s “Rosa” dress pattern to make the unique spring-ready garment on her sewing machine
To make the dress even more unique, Selika says she added her own puffed sleeves during the process, which took her around seven to eight hours.
The comments section of Selika’s post was inundated with compliments and praise for her homemade outfit – which cost her an incredible $ 16.50!
“If I did this with tea towels, it would look like a tea towel dress,” another joked after giving the dress a thumbs-up emoji
One fan was so inspired that he decided to go out and get some tea towels right away
