From a Dress to a Skirt



After cleaning and organizing my closet last week, I decided to turn this eyelet dress into a high-waisted skirt. It never did fit quite right in the ribcage, so instead of getting rid of it I figured I would try to make it into something wearable.

It was actually easier than I thought; the longest amount of time I spent on it was removing the seam along the bodice, which I did while watching tv one night. I then hemmed the skirt and sewed the seam back together and voila - it was ready to wear!




Skirt: Gap (was a dress), Tank: Target, Necklace: Topshop, Watch: Citizen, Belt: Winners, Shoes: Vintage (found in my grandma's basement).
