Overly Colorful Sundress into crop top and skirt

My mom bought me this sundress from the thrift store, but it's way too many colors and kind of frumpy looking.

I took the ruffle off the bottom, cut it in half, and sewed it back together again:
Then I sewed it to the bottom of the bodice to make a crop top.

I took the skirt and hemmed it and changed the shape to be a bit more of an a-line.

And that was how I took this terrible dress and made it wearable.
For more details on how I did it, see my blog.
