This was breezy upcycled piece was intended to be a skirt, but my model creatively suggested, why not make it a dress? The brown layers were from a cotton dress that I bought years and years ago for about $4. The denim portion were from a pair of cropped pants that were $2 and the pattern is the same from my denim train skirt. The zipper was from the dress itself and so except for the thread, I did not use anything that had not been used before. (More pictures will be coming.)
