That being said, I'll show you what I made for the Maxi Dress challenge for week 4:
I chose this (already pretty fabulous) Maxi Dress because I loved the metallic gold netting overlay. To update it just a little bit, I chopped it in half slightly above the waist.
I finished the raw edge of the black lining fabric and made a casing for elastic; Next, I made a kimono with the gold netting fabric. Lastly, I removed the gold netting from the top half of the original dress, removed the collar, and polished up all the raw edges.
Now, I have 3 pieces instead of 1: A black Maxi skirt, a daring (for me!) crop top, and a gorgeous gold shrug/kimono.
I love that this was only a .99 cent investment and that I can wear all three together, or separately. Talk about versatility!
