Description

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
..
