transformation: skirt to dress
i have a gorgeous ankle-length wrap skirt that i never wear. so sad. but i just haven’t been able to send it to the thrift store because my mommy bought it for me (aww…) and i wore it to the rehearsal dinner for my wedding (…shucks). so it has memories. plus, the most beautiful georgette fabric (and it’s already lined!). the colors are so romantic. but the length is just…dowdy mcdowdikins. for lack of a better word. so it just sits in the closet.
then inspiration hit me the other day as i was reaching for a t-shirt in my closet. (cue clouds-parting-in-the-sky music). i could turn it into a super sweet strapless dress! i mean, how cute?! flowy, sweet, and upcycled. so far it’s just in the planning stages, but the goal is to turn it into a faux wrap dress with a little sewing and a zipper. and a grosgrain ribbon waistband to help define the waist.
i’ll keep you posted with updates when i decide on the silhouette and finish this beauty.
