Secret Volumizer {Homemade}

Hello Everyone!

Hope you had a great Easter weekend. I bought this cute little dress at H&M that I loved, but I felt it was missing something. Volume. Not a lot of it but just enough to make it a little more fun and flirty. You know what that mean? I needed to put my thinking cap on and make a trip to Hobby Lobby. What did I come up with? Well.....I made me a little tutu, lol! Ok, maybe not quite a tutu but it reminded me of one. I bought some elastic, pins and 2 yards of tulle. I measured my waist and cut the elastic to fit. I folded the tulle in half,  pleated it along the elastic band and pinned it down. I sewed it in place and voila! I had a tulle skirt to wear under my dress to add just the right amount of volume. Check out the pictures:
 See the dress before? It just looks too flat! Now look at it after. Just perfect. 
 Simply add a belt to cinch up the waist and you have a much cuter look! 
I finally wore this dress this weekend with my secret volumizer (aka my homemade tulle skirt). 
I didn't want to overwhelm you with so many pictures...So, until next time stay tuned for the outfit post! 
Thank you so much for stopping by!

Love, 

IvonneStacy.
