When I saw its brightly colored tribal print on the racks at the thrift shop, I knew this maxi dress had to come home with me. Unfortunately, the torso was a bit too tight, and I wasn't keen on the peekaboo waistline or the side slits either. And of course, as I've mentioned before, I just never wear maxi dresses. But, having fallen madly in love with my last dress refashion, I immediately knew I wanted another one like it.
I mostly used the skirt to make my new dress, but also cut strips from the torso to create the arm and neckbands.
An elastic waistband gave it a little more shape, and now I've got another easy, breezy, comfy dress to make this summer heat somewhat more bearable.
