DIY: dress to skirt

I've had this dress for ages now, never worn it, it's been on ebay and to a carboot but didn't sell. When it was at the carboot I kept staring at it, thinking the print is really cute! I decided if it didn't sell I'd keep it and do something with it, and this is what happened!:

The dress to begin with

I cut the top part off, above the elasticated area

I was gonna make a bralet from the top part, but it was way to short.

The elasticated part was to big for a waist band, so I pinned it in half then sewed it down.

The finished result! (The top is also a DIY - post will be up in a few days!)


  1. That is so cute I love that!! Shame the bralet didn't work :( Maybe you could buy some fabric to extend it with?

    Still amazing though well done!
