I'm not gonna lie. I'm pretty excited/proud of this one. When I was at Salvation Army this past Wednesday, I decided to peruse the skirt section. I have bought long skirts before at a thrift store and turned them into strapless dresses. And thats what I had in mind for this skirt that was as homely as it could be. The elastic was pretty tight and so I knew it would work as a dress. But then I got an idea! I loved the trend that came out last summer of the short floral flowy skirts that girls tucked t-shirts into and put on a belt or just had an elastic waist - they were super cute but I just never bought one. Probably because I knew they were a trend therefore didn't want to spend the money on one unless it was super cheap - which meant my place of shopping was F21 but theirs were all too short for me. A girls gotta cover up! So anyway, thats what I decided to do. Crop that sucker!
Pretty hideous eh? Ahh, the potential in things that no one else sees. All for a mere $2.
And off came about 10 inches, with room to hem. I was too anxious to show you that I didn't iron it out once I sewed it. So here she is!!
