Swing Top

This thrifted Gap dress had a gorgeous orange print, but not quite enough room in the hips. So I decided to turn it into a swingy top instead.

I cut about a foot of fabric off the bottom and used it to add triangular inserts in the side seams.

And I used the remaining fabric to create a simple new project bag for my knitting!

The orange is a gorgeous colour and I like the shape of the top. Love how you made the knitting bag as well
