Dress to Maxi Skirt Refashion

Well, I wasn’t very inspired today. You might know the feeling if you’re a seamstress like me. I kind of have flashes of inspiration once in a while, and then have to push myself the rest of the time. Today I had to push myself, but anyway I went and rummaged in the Refashion stack and found this dress.  We got it at Plato’s Closet for $6.00.

There wasn’t anything wrong with it, except it wasn’t my style, and I didn’t like the shape of the bust part. This year I’m trying to be a bit more on the ball with my wardrobe, so I figured that this would be a good skirt for summer.

 Dress to Maxi Skirt Refashion Instructions:

Step 1: I cut off the top part of the dress close to the large band below the bust cups.

And Step 2:  Re-sewed the zipper so it was shorter.

I paired it with a plain white shirt, black shoes with rosettes on the toes and a denim jacket! The perfect usual maxi outfit!
