dress re-fashion

I found this dress at the local consignment shop and immediately fell in love with the shirt,

but was not so enchanted with the over-sized top.

So, I cut off the bottom,

cut out the zipper,

stitched it up,

and viola.

new skirt.

what do you think?

  9. Such a great refashion! You have a great eye because I definitely wouldn't have even touched that dress, but the skirt alone is actually super adorable!
