Converting A Dress Into A Skrit
I loved this dress.
I love the fabric, I love the print and I love the colour.
What I don't love is the fact that it was a bit too short and a bit too tight across my chest.
As someone with a petite but curvy figure it is often hard to get clothes to fit.
I wanted to wear this item more often and the only solution was to turn it into a skirt.
I am no seamstress so I tried to keep it as basic as possible.
I cut across the natural division between the skirt and the top part of the dress, turned a hem over and thread some elastic through.
I topped it with my old favourite New Look sweater which is the perfect fit.
It is not the smartest look in my wardobe but this outfit is my equivalent of a trask suit or PJs - comfort clothes for a busy day working at my computer.
Update: On this day last year I wore the most hideous outfit of the year - check it out here!
