2 for 1

I bought this dress on clearance at Macy's last Autumn. Original price $70.00, which I paid $7.50. Great deal, so I didn't try it on at the store. So you know what comes didn't fit right. Too confining and fit weird.

So, I cut it half at waist level. For the shirt, I just folded the edges under and hemmed 

For the skirt, I added some ribbing material that I had on hand, folded in half and added to the top of the skirt. 

Skirt with ribbing waist band - so comfy : )

So much better as two pieces! I love the maxi skirt with the navy sweater.
