I got this dress for the usual buck a while ago but I just couldn’t for the life of me figure out what to do with it.
I thought I could make something wearable out of the skirt portion as I thought the drop-waist style would make it difficult to keep it a dress. So I simply chopped of the skirt, turned over the edge to make a tunnel and threaded in some elastic.
Im not usually a fan of elastic waist skirts but I do like this one.
I didn’t want to waste the top half so I chopped the sleeves off and took the sides in. The blouse pairs well with these sailor pants which I fixed up last week. They had a big rip at the back pocket and were a little bit too short. I let them down and took them in as they were super super wide.
I actually think I prefer how it looks to wear the two pieces together. Looks like it was meant to be a cute little dress, thought now I have tons of possibilities with either a skirt, a top, or a sort of dress.
Im super excited to be heading out the the Nurses and The Tallest Man on Earth show here in Phoenix tonight! yayMay 4, 2010
