Cobalt Dress into Tank and Scarf

I got this dress about half-way through my weight loss last year. I loved how its jersey fabric hugged my ever-shrinking curves, but the loose ruffly tiers still hid any not-so-flattering bulges. Fast forward to today, and it clearly does more hanging than hugging.

I chopped the skirt off after removing the ruffles that were in the way, and I took up the shoulder a few inches to fix the gaping armholes. And my new tank top is just perfect! ...or will be when it's warm enough to wear a tank top.

And with the leftover skirt part, I cut strips and stretched them out to make a scarf necklace. I used the bits cut from the shoulder straps to encase the ends of my strips.
