Dress to Skirt Refashion

I was given this dress as a refashion project.

It was 100% linen and made of several panels cut on the bias arranged in a sort of twisted way, which gave a nice drape.

The obvious direction was a skirt, which would suit me better and retain the drape.  I made one cut to release the top section then cut another strip to make a waistband out of.

I added a zip and button closure to one of the seams and it was done.

There are more details and photos here

Very pretty. That material looks like a water color painting, it's lovely.

Love it! Linen is my favorite summer season fabric. Good job.
