I swear I took some ‘before’ pictures, but I can’t find them anywhere… no worries. This is the simplest refashion ever so the after pics should be enough.
The dress I used was someone’s old bridesmaid dress made from stiff, shiny polyester with lace overlay (I love the lace). The bottom half has a flattering almost pencil skirt shape, but the top was just formal and dated. So all I did was cut the top off- about two inches above the narrowest part of dress. I sewed a half inch seam around the top and voila! New skirt! It sits nice and high and looks great with a belt.
And here’s my sweet baby. We’re so glad it’s warmed up!
