Description

I had this old dress lying around that was my style for about 12 seconds many years ago. I’ve been wanting to recycle it into something for a while, but couldn’t think of anything until today. I just sewed the bottom up and added elastic in the leg holes. I’ll probably try it out in my bathtub before wearing it in public, but I think it’s cute!
