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!
