i don't have any sort of tutorial - because, honestly, i didn't know if it'd be successful or not. haha! all i did was:
1) cut off the straps
2) take in the top part of the dress a bit on both sides to fit my waist (it's the scrunchy, stretchy fit that's on bust part of most sundresses - you know what i'm talking about?)
3) folded down the top part and sewed - it made it feel more like a waist band instead of just a top part of a dress.
*i may possibly take in the width on the bottom part, but i kind of like the poofyness with the high waist. seems very 50's.
so i chose this purple top (it doesn't flatter my tummy because of the super thin material, but i always liked how it fit my bust - and that's perfect for this skirt!) and with the belt, i feel like it was a win! i can interchange shirts/tanks and i think i can also wear the skirt lower, like a peasant skirt.
i'm so proud of myself, can you tell?! haha!
ps - my hubby got me the sewing machine for christmas 2 years ago, and i've only used it once since. :[ so he was super happy i am using it (finally!), and he loved what i did with the dress!
i look a little funky here, but i wanted to show the earrings i made a long time ago - they went SO well with my outfit! :]
isn't my lil girlie the most beautiful?!
