I bought this dress from the clearance rack at Belk quite awhile ago. After I tried it on at home, I realized it didn’t look quite right on me and passed it along to my mom.
When I was home a few months ago, I found it in my mom’s donate pile. The print was intriguing and the fabric was soft and flowing so I wanted to see if I could refashion it. I decided that the overwhelming print was the problem with the dress. To tone it down, I made turned the dress into a skirt.
This skirt was so simple. First, I cut off the top.
I reinforced the seam where the two sides come together with a zig-zag stitch.
And that was it! A new skirt. I wore it to church with the fam over Thanksgiving weekend.
You can’t really see the waistband against my black shirt, but it’s there and the skirt fit well. I already had a sweater that matched the blue in the print. I wanted to wear black flats but the below freezing temps swayed me towards boots since I didn’t have any tights with me.
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I always enjoy a chance to see my family, and I even got a chance to work on some Christmas presents.
