I thought the price was just about right ... I actually liked the original dress.

But I like the new top even better - way to revitalize!

Thank you very much!!

 Smiley Thank you both very much! I definitely look at clothes in a different way when I want to refashion something - instead of looking at the garment as a whole I look at the fabric and pattern - then I can find beauty in the strangest places  Cheesy

I thrifted this polyester Norman Bates-esque number for $3.99.  It was begging to be transformed.






I hacked off the top section, realizing the elastic waist was actually where the top and bottom half were stitched together, so there was no saving the material from the top really.  I flipped the remaining skirt upside down on the dress form, used a sleeve for a halter neck...and gathered the back into a waterfall ruffle.






Tada!!

Thank you for looking!  Smiley
