I’m here to admit two of my many faults:
1. I buy ugly stuff….when its super cheap. I just can’t help it.
2. My legs are longer then I realize…so I often buy dresses/pants/shorts/skirts that are too short. (especially if they are super cheap)
And there is my predicament. I have a couple not so cute, very cheap dresses, hanging in my closet from a while ago. Tags still on. They are too short.
But this year, I am trying to make the most of my wardrobe. (remember that my resolution is to not purchase clothes for the year!) Since spring break is in a week….now is when I would go clothes shopping. But not this year!! So I did something I’ve never done before! I cut up a dress….in order to make a skirt!
Here is the not-so-cute…way too short dress. (I’m not putting it on, because that would defeat the purpose of people not seeing me in short dresses lol)
Like I said, I just cant pass up a $0.97 price.
With one cut, and one stitch...I simply cut off part of the top, folded it over, and sewed it back together. Nothing fancy! It has stretchy pieces on the sides, so I didn't even need to ad an elastic waist band!I literally cut off about 2-3 inches from the top of the dress. Thats how short we were talking here! (whoops!) And there you have it! A somewhat cuter-not as short- skirt!
