This dress was made using a secondhand pair of maroon suede pants and a ling pink chiffon skirt!
The pants were a large size and made of the most gloriously thick and satin lined deep red suede which I made the bodice from (and I even recycled the fly zipper and used it as my side zip!). I then found the cutest pleated chiffon skirt and attached that to the bottom.
I left the skirt long, but I’, only 5 foot and it makes me look a bit short and stumpy so I might cut it short yet… I can’t decide!
