The steps Rachel of Smile and Wave took to transform this sweet vintage dress into a stylish smock top are so simple, they can be completed in no time at all.

  1. Hmmm…not sure about this one. My mother used to wear these “smocks” to do her housework when the weather was warm (we didn’t have a/c).

  2. OMG – I actually have an old smock dress that I love. Never thought of shortening to wear with capris. Love it!!

  3. All that the dress would need is a waist belt and some tights, a chunky necklace and it would be fine to wear.

  4. Danielle,
    Yes, it’s darling as a dress and would look great styled as you suggested but it just wasn’t flattering belted(as shared in the original post on my blog). Trust me, I tried!
    So, the next step was donate or try something DIY and I was really happy with how it turned out.
