Hi everybody!

A few months ago I found this dress at a thrift store.  It sat in a box since then though because it never really fit properly and was really baggy on top.  I finally decided that what I really liked from the dress was the bottom so I chopped the thing in half and made a skirt!  All I did was make a casing on the top and thread a strip of elastic through.  Easy-peasy  Smiley

Here's a shot before...

And two after...

I can never resist a twirly skirt  Grin

LOVE this too!   I can't resist a twirly skirt, and the finished length is so much more flattering on you!

Great Job! Cheesy

Perfect! It is much more versatile this way.

Did you make a top out of the rest? Looks like it would make a nice camisole.
