Frumpy Dress to Pretty Skirt

Repurposing, Sewing

I got this dress secondhand about 2 (?) years ago, and I love the pattern on it. Palest yellow with beautiful blue floral print and it has such a nice drape to it, as the fabric is 100% rayon. The shape of the dress, however, just wasn’t flattering on me. The wast was too high up and added weight to my figure in a less than nice way. After I pulled one of the seams at an event I was volunteering for, I decided to remake the whole thing into something better for me.

I chopped the skirt off and used the top to make a waistband. I added a hook and eye and 3 snaps to keep the waist secure.

I think that I will continue to get a lot of use out of this beautiful fabric, and now it looks more flattering on me!
