Most of us own a Mexican top and I don’t know about you, but I never wore mine any more, so after seeing what the gal in the attached tutorial did with hers, I just had to do the same!
Depending on how many of these dresses you have, this would be a cool Christmas present for someone in your family. I’m sure you can find some of these tops at Good Will or a thrift store if you don’t have one.
Several months ago, I found this beautiful Mexican dress at a thrift store. I was so excited and started to examine it, then I found some ripped seams and stains that may not come off. Here was the moment of truth… Should I buy it or not… the embroidery was too beautiful to pass up, so I decided to get it because I remembered seeing the coolest purses made out of Mexican Dresses on Pinterest.
These are great looking bags that resemble a Bohemian look, especially if you make it hobo style and attach bright colored pom poms to the side of the strap. Take a look at some of the things people have done with these dresses on Pinterest!
