Fall Skirt Tutorial

Thrift shopping led me to a fabulous find this fall.  When I saw the print of this dress my mind starting spinning.

The dress itself is kind of dated. Needs some work. The collar leaves something to be desired. So I decided to convert it into a maxi skirt for the fall!

I started by cutting of the top part of the dress. Luckily, this dress already had elastic in the waist so it saved me the step of sewing one in.  I cut about an inch or so about the elastic to give me a little space to work with.  I then pinned the extra fabric down the the existing elastic and sewed around the perimeter of the elastic attaching the extra fabric.  Because I cut an inch. I had a lot of extra inside once sewn, so I trimmed that down so it wouldn't poke out when wearing it. 

Then rock it out!!
