How did  you attach them Just love them they are so cute and very pretty. Great job.

Thanks! I just sewed right through the elastic of the original skirt, it was pretty easy. You just have to sort of stretch it a bit as you go.

Your dresses are beautiful! I never thought of using skirts that way. I wish I had kept those I donated to GW! Great job!

I love these. The fabric is so pretty and I love what you did with the belt in the first pic.

Great minds think alike, I see Smiley
I've bought countless thrift store skirts because the fabric is just so darn pretty, but the design is awful.  I sorted through my closet, and found plenty of tank tops I never wear, so I just attached the skirts to cutoff tank tops and voila!
I especially love that first one, it's gorgeous!

I do love this style of dress, yours are awesome in pattern choices, MUCH cuter than the ones I've seen, too. Flimsy thin flannel not worthy of anything but lingerie.

Agreed, Limeade
