Refashion Mathematics: Part 1

The other day I was contemplating how the "mathematics"of refashioning defy mathematic rules. In refashioning 1+1 can, in fact, equal 1.  In this case, 1 dress + 1 top = 1 dress.

The pieces were a strappy lime green sun dress, and a funky purple, green & black top.
The minuscule top offered exactly zero coverage, so I was initially going to turn this into a skirt. 
This shirt looked so promising on the hanger, but fit like a sack.

The greens just so happened to match very well. So the black across the bottom of the shirt became a waist band, the wide black sleeves became binding for the arm holes of the newly cut tank style top, and I have a fun, funky new dress!

Yes, 1+1= 1 Awesome dress!!!! The colors and style are such a good fit. And it looks so good on you. It is hard to believe the dress was not always a #1 dress.

Love it it came out so nice looking. Love the colors too. Can't wear those colors myself-but they look good on you for sure.
