The Peasant Skirt Dress

Hello Refashion Co-op. How are all of you? I hope you are well and safe. I have been trying to work through my refashion stash since I have not gone to any clothes swaps or thrift stores in quite a while. I am trying to find a use for all the things I have saved. These 2 pieces needed help. I cut the bottom tier of the skirt of a couple years ago to make something and I saved what was left of the skirt. The striped t-shirt caught my eye at a swap a long time ago but it was cropped and I was afraid my saggy mom stomach would show if I wore it. (My weird belly button is my business.)

I cut the lining of the skirt and hemmed it all up. That was easy.

I wanted to make sure the shirt stayed tucked in. I pinned it all together and tacked the skirt and shirt together in several places. I had to do this twice to make sure everything gathered evenly.

I ended up with a super comfortable dress. I liked the elastic waistband and the pattern mixing very much.

Thanks for reading along, for more pictures and details go to I Can Work With That.
