Thrifted Dress= Skirt

Hey everyone!  I hope you all had a great Independence Day yesterday!  Mine was a little different this year.  I didn't end up doing much celebrating on account of a bad migraine, but I still got to see a few fireworks :)

So, last week I finally got around to some sewing.  I've had this ugly thrifted dress in my closet for about a year now and it was time to do something with it.


I've seen so many wonderful things done with ugly thrifted dresses and I've always wanted to try my hand at it.  But, as it turns out, you need a bit more sewing experience under your belt than I have to do a complete dress make-over.  So I opted to focus on the bottom half and make a skirt.  I tried out a simple skirt tutorial from One Pearl Button.   And this is how mine turned out...


Definitely not perfect, but I think it's wearable as long as you don't look too close.. hehe!

  1. Wow, I'm really impressed. I don't have the desire to try something that tricky. It looks great!
