Dress To Skirt- A Fashion Save

I picked this dress up from the Goodwill a week ago. I love the orange silk top and the skirt is really cute with buttons and pockets. I LOVE pockets! I tried it on and there was one issue. As you can see in the image below one side bulges out. And you probably can't see this in the image but the other side pulls to the center slightly. I was about to give up and sadly place it back on the rack when I suddenly had an idea. I could turn this dress into a skirt! The skirt was really what made the dress anyway so I wouldn't miss the top too much despite the fact that I also LOVE silk.

Uneven sides are no bueno.

I love the way it turned out. SO much better! Maybe I will turn the silk top into a sash or something for another refashion.

To see pics and a description of the entire process please check out my blog about this project!

I love the print on the skirt! So glad you were able to save it! And who knows, maybe you'll find another use for that orange silk later on.
