I apologize in advance for the poor image quality . So I found this huuge floral linen skirt at the thrift store for $3:
and I think it has potential to become a cute summer dress. It's hard to tell in the photo, but it has a wide, flared skirt and buttons down the center.
I was thinking I could have the top part fitted, with some buttons open so it has a bit of a V-cutout--BUT I'm a little hesitant to remove/reattach the skirt because I want to preserve the buttons (don't want a zipper). Should I:
A. construct the bust separately and re-attach it to the skirt (which would require a zipper)
B. do the bust separately and DON'T reattach the skirt, just belt it as separates
C. Just fit it as a maxi skirt
D. something else inventive!
Can have any ideas, or maybe some pics for inspiration?
