Maxi Refashion

Remember this printed dress I found for $5? it was cute, but I have an over abundance of maxi dresses/skirts and it was about 20 sizes too big..

So I chopped the skirt portion off and created a pattern from one of my favorite tank tops. After I made the top part of my new dress, I used the rest of the bottom of the skirt to create the bottom portion of the dress. As I’ve said before, I pretty much make everything up as I go so here is how it turned out.

My first dress completely from scratch, and no pattern. I still have a lot to learn but it’s not a bad start!

And this photo was all the motivation I needed to get on the treadmill, and get some SUN! :)
