I have been drooling over the cute little strapless summer dresses I see everywhere, but couldn't find one that fit me right in the top.  As fate would have it, I also cleaned my closet and found a skirt that I used to love but never wear anymore.  So! what I did was cut the top (to keep the elastic and draw tie) -- made that into a bodice empire waist thingy then stitched up the slits in the skirt.  Now the draw string makes a cute little bow on the top of the dress. (Not that it looks cute in the picture, but I had just finished sewing) Grin  I actually wore it to work the other day.
