I've turned two long dresses that my husband got me in Iraq a few years ago into skirts. Over the last few years, I apparently have become a little more...busty. Smiley Yeah, sure, busty, that's what it is. I'm sure it wasn't a weight gain or anything. Each dress was a tank top style and I cut the tops off and made new waistbands.

Before of the blue/grey one. This is a beautiful color in real life! See how the tank couldn't be buttoned?

After of the blue/grey one.

I forgot to take a before one of the khaki one. I really like this one, because the left side hem on it has a random point coming down from the asymmetrical hem. That one is secured on the side with a snap.

I'm really proud of how these turned out. I've tried other clothing modifications before and they haven't turned out yet. Granted, I ripped out the waistband a couple times to get it right, but I feel like I've turned a corner with my sewing with these projects. I can't wait to wear these to work!

My zombie gnome was a 2013 Featured Project, my KISS gnomes were an August 2014 Featured Project, and my TARDIS was a February 2016 Featured Project. Thanks for voting for them.
