Refashioned Threads

Last Spring I bought this dress. It's a size 12 and I couldn't pass up the clearance rack price. I was sure that I would wear it during the summer some place, but alas I did not.

Fast forward to this Spring. I still have the dress and it's still a size 12, but I'm not. I now fluctuate between an 8 and a 10. I love the print and still wanted to wear it, but it just didn't fit right, so ...

... I did some alterations to the dress and made it into a skirt. I had to take out the zipper, gathered the waist and sewed in some elastic. Not bad for an hours worth of work? I wore it today to church and got several compliments on it. I liked that! Cute huh?
