Hello friends!  I found this dress at Goodwill and it was so big, and long, and made me look like a child:



But I loved the color and the pleated texture of the fabric.  So I cut in half and added a drawstring to the waist and got this........



And THEN I carefully cut the lining out of the top, turned it backwards so the buttons were in the front, and got this!



I'm pretty happy with the results.  As always, you can read more & see more photos on my blog Smiley http://www.roadtotheheart.com/2012/08/gigantic-pink-dress-upcycle-part-deux.html
