Falling For Florals

Hello Refashion Co-op. I know floral prints are usually for spring but this brown seemed like fall to me. I liked the dress but the top was much too small. I decided to save the bottom and make it a skirt.

I planned to remove the top and leave the waistband in place. I unpicked the wrong seam and removed the waistband from the skirt by accident. Oops! I got rid of the top and stitched the waistband back on. I connected it all the way around the skirt to finish the raw edge. I shortened the zipper and it was finished.

The top started as a turtleneck top. I used the neckband for another project and had this shirt waiting to be remade. I made it into a fitted, 3/4 length sleeve top.

I made my hubby take a quick picture as we were going out. You can just barely see my little guy in the grass behind me. He didn't want to get in the car.

For more details and pictures you can go to I Can Work With That.
Happy Sewing!
