I bought this dress a while ago. It was cheap and I liked the bold print so I grabbed it.
A while later I revisited it and I thought I would roll the top half down and wear the dress as a skirt.
It would result in this gorgeous silhouette.
Again I banished it to the dresser, too stubborn to let it go.
So this weeks project was pretty obvious and super easy (yay!) Turn the dress into a skirt, get rid of the excess.
I folded the top down to meet with the waist line. This way the elastic that kept the dress up was now at waist level.
I used those stitching lines as a guide to keep it even all the way around. Then it was just a straight stitch under the elastic.
Then I cut the bulk and ironed out the seam.
This is a perfect Victoria Day post, it took no time and now I can go outside and play.
