I bought this dress at a yard sale for, you guessed it!  a dollar!  This dress was made for a very tiny woman, not me!  As you can see, it is very snug in the chest and very, very snug in the hips.   I figured this dress would make a cute tunic so I cut the material so that the bottom of the tunic nearly meets the bottom of my bottom.  It still fit really snug at my hips so I seam-ripped up the side seams about four inches and hemmed all of the rough edges.   Voila!  Super easy top!

What did you do with the rest of the fabric. I think it could make a very nice tote bag. Your top is great. Welcome to Craftster!

Thanks!  I was just wondering that myself.  I think it is sitting in my scrap pile but I am not sure.  A while back, I gave a friend's kids a lot of my scraps to play sew with so it might be with them.

Oh, so great finding a piece of clothing for a dollar (in my case: euro Wink ) and then making it into something that flatters you so much more! Great recon!
