DIY; Safety Pin Dress

I always find it pretty hard to explain DIY's on my blog as I think a video would be much easier to explain.. I'm not sure whether to give a recording a go?
For this saftey pin dress you will need just three things;
#A simple dress/t- shirt (one your happy to cut up)
#Scissors
#Safety pins (try a mixture, silver, gold, big or small) 
If your dress already has a mid body seam/hem you can simply cut along that, if not try and work out where your mid-rift will be and slowly cut there. However leave the two side seams still connected, don't worry if you do trim it though as it will just need more pins.
As you can see I cut the front then left both sides and moved to the back, as this dress had button details I left trimming the middle just to keep that detail but you don't have to.
The safety pinning is pretty simple, just hook both pieces of material and clip the pin.
As you can see the dress shows just that little bit of skin which adds just that little bit of detail to a simple day dress.. I also think it would be super easy to style. I'm sure it will feature in an outfit post soon.
Let me know if you give this a go. /Hope you are all well.
