A very simple recon, but exciting. :-)
This was originally a pant suit I saw at Goodwill and thought would make an awesome dress.
I kind of winged it as I went along, and though I didn't initially intend to make it so, it turned into a pencil skirt. The craftsmanship and quality are far from excellent, but in the end, I'm pretty happy with it, and I hope you all like it too!

Here's the original:

Comments are much appreciated!

This is a great recon!  The dress looks really cute on you, and it looks like you did a good job with your sewing.  Awesome project!
