I had a wrap skirt that I loved, but it never stayed closed on the sides, so I was always showing off an indecent amount of leg. It has languished in my closet for years. No longer!
Here's what I did:
I cut off the waist band of the skirt, then folded it right sides together and sewed up the side seam.
I embellished a plain black tank with scrap fabric and ribbon that I bought for this project. I hacked it off a few inches below my bust.
I then eased the skirt onto the cropped tank and voila! Gypsy dress.
All in all this was a painless project. It cost me about $3.50 in materials (the new fancy ribbon). If you want to see more process pics, you can see my blog post about the dress here: http://www.geekxnerd.com/2008/05/wrap-skirt-to-gypsy-dress.html
Thanks for looking!
