    I love it! Making clothes out of formaly-something-else is a favorite of mine. Good job.

    thank you so much! well, i already said that i didn’t use a pattern so….i just sewed a seam at the bottom, fold the top and stitched it two times – first to create a frill effect on top, second to build a hem for the elastic, then connected the sides an sewed two straps from the same fabric. thats it.

    I think it looks pretty and really feminine with the belt. Lovely remake
