|Do you like the post-workout-no-makeup look? Yikes!|
So today I decided to save the part that I love - the embroidered border on the bottom - and ditch the rest. I took out my sewing shears and...Wha La...a skirt from a dress!
I wrapped the elastic around the dress where I wanted the waistline to be and marked that spot. Then I measured up from the hem and marked that distance all around the skirt and cut on the line. I decided that I wanted a separate waistband rather than a foldover one so I cut another strip from the remaining fabric, inserted some 1 inch elastic and stretched and stitched it to the skirt waist. The whole refashion took less than an hour!
I think that I will get a lot more use out of this look!
