Make a Skirt From a "too small "Dress

 Lilly had this cute dress (shown above) that she loved and it just doesn't fit anymore.  So instead of throwing it out, I decided to make a skirt out of it.  I really like the detailing on the hem  and just couldn't get rid of it.  This would probably work best with dresses that have the empire (high) waist.  I cut the top off of the dress just below the ties and then used an old T-shirt to make a stretchy waist band.  I used the same technique I used for my Yoga top skirt HERE.  I never got any photos of my cutie in it, but she did look super cute in it, with her leather "Ramones" jacket and pink and black boots.
 I love refashioning new clothes out of old ones!
