Skirt = Dress

I went thrifting a few days back and found a highwaisted skirt in the coolest color with star prints all over it! Bad news... it's a size 16. I'm a size 4 or 6 so this was definitely wayyyy too big. So for the past few days i've been experimenting with it. I cut and sewed it and somehow it turned into a dress, skirt, & top. I dont have the original picture but let me show you some pictures to show you the jist of it.

BEFORE:


AFTER:
This is the skirt as a dress. To get here I just cut the skirt in half. Turned the bottom half into a bubble top. Then I used the top part as the bottom half of the dress.
It even has pockets! I really love dresses with pockets. They're so handy.
So this is the dress without the bottom half. Worn just as a top.
I can also transform the top into a mini bubble skirt.

This skirt was definitely worth the 4 bucks :)
