Description

This was a gigantic skirt I found while thrifting. I loved the bottom and wanted to find a way to use it. I cut and hemmed arm holes low on the dress so the shoulders would rise like a vintage 50’s dress. I then fitted it along the body.

    I thought you were going to say you had made it out of an old rug! I agree, lovely. Thrifting is the BEST.
