Flirty Animal Print Dress Refashion

Happy New Year! Kung Hee Fat Choy! We're in the midst of celebrating Chinese New Year here in Hawai`i, and although I don't have any horse inspired refashions, I do have a cute animal print redo to share with you.

I found this skirt for free at a clothing swap. After all of the "cute" clothes were taken, I noticed it hanging sadly on the rack. I picked up and held it up to my waist. The owner happened to walk by and claimed that she never would have purchased the skirt had it not been for a salsa class. I decided right then and there to give it a home in my closet.  I loved the fullness of it, and actually wore it several times.




I would not have minded keeping this piece as a full, flowing skirt.  However, I began to see some refashioning potential.  This skirt was destined to become a flirty dress.  After some reconstruction and dye, it was totally transformed.  


I love it even more. You can find out more about this refashion over at my blog Feeling Kinda Thrifty.

Aloha, 
Trish

There is no way you would ever think that is the same skirt. So cute.

Great transformation! I love that you dyed it and though I love long flowy skirts, I think it is super cute as a dress :)
