so my mom gave me one of her dresses and it was too long for me so I decided to make a skirt out of the bottom half so I can still wear the dress as a dress :] I just put an elastic for the waist and that’s it. It’s super easy and simple
EDIT: I remade them into shorts, check the link: http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/reconstruction-from-skirt-to-shorts-diy
