Prom season is upon us, and if you haven’t already found your dress (or, if you need a look for another formal occasion), you might want to listen up, because there’s a $4 DIY gown out there going viral.
Amber Scholl, a 24-year-old blogger, is not a teen headed to a dance, but either way, she decided to test her skillz and make a totally elaborate floor-length piece fit for prom. All she needed to accomplish this was a $4 dress, which she purchased from Good Will, some thread, a needle, and a little over $100 of craft supplies (like crystals, glue, and feathers). Please take a look at the before and after pics here.

Basically, Scholl took a plunging black skater dress, sewed the skirt to be more ~bodycon~, and added tons of feathers and sparkle to make the finished lewk. A statement necklace topped off the whole ensemble.
If you want to know exactly how she did it, check out the YouTube video she posted, titled, “DIY THRIFT STORE PROM DRESS MAKEOVER!” (!!!!) In it, she admits designing dresses is a completely new territory for her: “Disclaimer: I don’t know what I’m doing. I’ve never really done this before.”
