I took an old tea length linen Banana Republic skirt and a tank I picked up on sale at Urban Outfitters and turned it into a dress. The skirt was absolutely hideous before. Seriously. But I loved the fabric so much! So, I hacked the skirt in two, and turned the upper portion into a cool high waistband with little peaks. I just attached the waistband to the skirt portion, and then the top to the skirt and now I have an amazing new dress for summer. I love how the skirt portion turned out!
