Floral skirt

I found this skirt at the thrift shop. I think it was a strapless tunic, it had those clear straps for hanging in the closet. I did try to wear as a skirt as it, but it was a bit too loose and I had to keep adjusting it throughout the day to keep the elastic shirring from showing.

I tried to cut the elastic thread but made a small hole in the fabric. I decided to cut my loses and proceed with a different strategy. So, I cut off the top ruffled edge, hemmed under and inserted elastic. This took maybe 10 minutes. Now it will be more comfortable and easier to wear as a skirt.
