From Dress to Skirt in 0.5

I have several dresses that I can no longer wear due to just a wee bit of weight gain (basically at the top) :-(
I decided to just make skirts out of them. Here is one I finished tonight - I also had enough to make a necklace scarf to match.
I love the fabric print - but it had a bodice that just screamed "look at me" and I had to wear something under it PLUS a shrug and I still felt subconcious in it. I love Maxi skirts just as much as dresses so this is a winner now!


  1. that looks very nice on you! so smart.

  2. I love the fabric, it looks great as a skirt!


  3. This is so pretty. I love the print.

  4. A smart idea! And it looks great too! Thanks for sharing at the All Star Block Party.


  5. Great idea! I'll bet you will get a lot more use out of it now!

  7. Hi Pamela! Thanks for stopping by my blog, I really appreciate it! I hope you enjoy reading about my little life with my new little guy! You have yourself a new follower!!

  8. I like this idea. Great way to re-purpose without having to get rid of something that you like to wear. I will have to keep this in mind. Stopping by from That Friday Blog Hop.
