How to Disguise a Tear in a Dress Neckline

My friend's daughter got a small tear in the neckline of her dress. It was definitely a dress that had to be saved!

First I zig zag stitched across the tear a couple of times.



Then I sewed a square of velcro right in the middle along the top of the neck line.

Now is the fun part. I picked out a few pretty flowers, cut the green part down on the back, and glued velcro to them. (Some flowers will come apart if you cut the plastic off. If this happens, you can hot glue the pieces back together!)






Now she has her super cute dress with interchangeable colored flowers!

Great idea! Most people would have thrown the dress away but you, as always, came up with a creative way to save it! One more thing kept out of the landfill! I bet your friend's daughter loves this too!
