Yesterday's project was a dress-to-skirt refashion. Today's is a skirt-to-dress refashion. I found this very long, but not quite maxi, knit skirt in my recent closet purging. It was desperately out of fashion and very unflattering, but I still really liked the fabric. Thinking I might use the fabric to make some kind of a top for myself I hiked the dress up over my chest to see how much fabric there was and saw...a dress. Not for me. I just don't pull off strapless well, but my daughter has a cute little figure that I thought it would be perfect for.
Here is the skirt before the refashion:
|See how thrilled my daughter is with the style? haha!|
|So sassy cute, right?|
She wanted to be able to wear a regular bra with the dress so I happened to have a black t-shirt (also a closet purging find) that I am refashioning into a pillow for my son's college apartment.
Here's the T-shirt:
I borrowed a section from the bottom of the T-shirt to make the straps and even had enough left to make a cute little rosette for the bodice.
|It's so hard to see details on black, but that is the rosette on the right there.|
She went back to school today wearing the dress so I'm calling it a refashion success!
Have you ever remade something that you liked even better than the original?
Leave a comment and tell us about it.
Now...Off for more fun with fabrics - and maybe even one feast tonight!
