Two Dresses from One Skirt

I got this 2XL tiered skirt from a friend. The blue and purple batik fabric was just awesome, but the elastic was pretty much shot!

Batik Dress - Before

I chopped off the stretched-out waistband and found I had enough fabric to make two dresses - so I did! One for me and one to donate. I cut the skirt up both side seams and stitched each half into its own tube. I then trimmed the back a little lower than the front, added a casing, and inserted some new elastic. Tada!
