Floral and Stripes

I had such a blast as a contestant two years ago that I just had to sew along with the weekly challenges for Season 3 of Refashion Runway! The challenge this week was floral and geometric/stripes. So I pulled out this yellow striped t-shirt and a too-big floral dress, and I got to work!

I removed the skirt from the dress and cut the bottom off the tee. Then I joined the two with a length of elastic at the waist.

LOVE the floral print. It is very similar to a vintage sheet that I picked up at the Goodwill Clearance Center that became a curtain across my daughter's closet.

OK! Love this dress! The color and pattern combo are out of the box.
I cant't resist sewing along. I spent the afternoon in the stash and found a flowers/geometric that might work. I will work on it tonight.
