This dress more or less fit me but just wasn't quite my style.  And you can't tell from the pictures but this dress was very sheer. I didn't take any pictures as I was refashioning it but I basically removed the bottom of the dress that had the panels on it.  To keep it modest, I added lining, and then I added elastic around the waistband.  The waistband is kind of bulky so I might rework that but I think I made this skirt just in time for floral trend explosion.

It looks cool as a skirt now and I like the waistband.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Really great job redoing this dress.  I think my mom has some old dresses I could refashion like this. Thanks for the post!
