So here it is, a little later than promised: my step-by-step demonstration of how I turned a little dress, that didn’t fit or flatter so well, into a skirt that I love. I’ve done this at least 3 times now, and while each one was a little different, and needed it’s own unique “tweaks,” all of the results have been great. Not only does this simple technique allow you to breathe new life into a piece you already own, but it gives you more shopping options. Find a dress at the thrift store with a totally awesome print, but it’s too short or not your style? Buy it anyway, and turn it into your next favorite skirt!
