Here I am with another refashion that’s going to rock your world. Er, not really.
This is just another easy fix I made on a $3.50 thrift store find.
I love the color blocking on this dress. It also reminded me of Kim’s sherbet dress, which I love. Unfortunately, this dress was manufactured for a junior wearer, and I, well, have graduated past junior status long ago.
Fortunately, the tank top portion of the dress was attached with a really nice, thick waistband. So, I turned the dress inside out and cut off the top as near to the edge of the waistband as possible. This left me with a much better suited skirt.
I left the original serged edge, because I didn’t mind it, but it would have also been easy to remove the threads and make a new seam.
Now I have a skirt with all of the same cuteness and much more versatility than I could have gotten from the dress. Plus, no worries of flashing the undergarments while running about town, which I’m certain the townsfolk are all thankful for.
How about you? Have you been cutting up any perfectly good clothing lately?
