Dress to Skirt

I love clearance racks. We went out shopping on Black Friday and I bought a 45 dollar dress from old navy on sale for $6.97 I thought it was rather ugly and it was a couple sizes too big, but it had potential. As it turned out, it was a super easy project and I LOVE the end result.

All I did was cut off the top of the dress and sew a strip from the top into a waist band. I could have made this into a casing for elastic, but I didn't end up having to because the back of this dress was made out of this cool stretchy fabric.

I took in the sides, trimmed my seams...

Voila! A cute, warm, incredibly comfortable skirt with a matching bracelet from the dress straps.
