This is my first clothing post! I've been lurking for like, two years. I love crafting, but I never make anything that I like enough to post.

SO. Here goes...



I found this dress at Goodwill. I tried it on. It was kid sized. I got stuck in it... and ripped it. OH NO! I felt terrible! So, I decided to buy it. While I was struggling to get myself out of it, I had a great idea: I would turn it into a high waisted skirt!

I moved the zipper, added some bais tape, and VOILA! A SKIRT WORTHY OF THE SEA!



Here's a detail of the heart buttons.



And the skirt on me!



Yay! I did it! First successful recon! Thanks for looking!!!! What do you think?

-I give up on making TOL pendants.  If anyone would like to have my stone chips, wire and ect.  I would gladly trade it all for some knitting/crochet stuff.

-Currently crafting.....A Weasley blanket.  I'd love some squares made from fellow Craftsters.
