Spring Break Project #2: Dress --> Skirt
Tuesday, March 29, 2011
So here comes the results of my next Spring Break project! Yesterday I went to my cousin's house who is so amazing and talented with a sewing machine and she taught me some tips and tricks. I will be writing more about her in another post because she really is great!
Yesterday she taught me how to sew and inserting elastic for things like pajama pants, or in this case, a skirt!
Here's the dress (stolen from my own Facebook, haha):
Or you might recognize it from this post:
Well, I love this dress. But over time, it just got way too short and the top got really loose. Naturally, this saddens me because I love the pattern and I always want to wear it out (especially to church), but can't because of how short and loose it is.
So I decided to make it into a skirt!
Tadaaa! Now it's a skirt!
Skirt: Refashioned by me || Shirt: Forever 21 || Chambray Shirt: Thrifted || Belt: Thrifted
Tights:Target || Necklace: Present || Purse: Present || Sunglasses: Forever 21
I actually copied this style from Erin -- we haven't posted the pictures yet, but she inspired this outfit for me. Or rather, I copied it very closely.
Also, hope you enjoyed the photos -- shoutout to my Mommy who took them! It was both fun and funny. x)
