Frumpaliciousness to Deliciousness


OK so here’s my attempt at refashioning a thrift store skirt to a dress. Loved the colors and the pattern but the style was so unflattering to my short pear shaped self. I just took in the sides a bit, trimmed the seam and used the trimmings to make two small shoulder straps. Paired with this jacket, belt and boots, it just might work.

Next time I’ll try to have a head. 🙂

    So cute, Beth! I think I could actually (maybe) do this one! I see skirts all the time that I love the fabric and pattern, but hate the cut or the fit. I just might try this. . . .
