Easy skirt to dress refashion (zero waste!)

I found this lovely too big skirt, which I am just a sucker for paisley designs. It was a tiered dress with a side zipper.

I decided to turn it into a dress by simply keeping the side zipper in (it fits over my chest so no need to readjust!) and added a strip of elastic at the first tier/second tier intersection. Poof! Instant dress! Comfy too!

Recap. Easy dress for the summer!

Looks awesome! Since discovering this "skirt to dress" idea a couple months ago, I think I've already made 5 of them! So simple and great results!
