another refashion project
in which too big skirt
(flea market 1 euro find)
becomes a dress
pattern is self drafted
i shortened the skirt
and then used that extra fabric
to make bodice
original skirt was too wide for me
so i shortened the wide elastic at the back of the skirt
by some 10 cm
and that made the waistband perfect
back bow is my favorite part of the dress
see more pics on my blog:
1 flea market skirt, a bit of embroidered cotton trim for bodice embellishment
