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

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!!
