a week at a glance, part 2

I bought this dress in Australia at the thrift store, I love the idea of wearing this flowy thing, but it just never worked. As usual I have hung on to it for a year, before I decided to upcycle it. There is enough fabric to make two skirts plus some.

You can't see it but there is a seam running around the waist of the dress, so I cut it there and then just used half of that to make one skirt. Next I decided how to do the waist, I have had a lot of fun with elastic thread already and didn`t have any thick elastic so I used two thin bands sewn separately so that it creates a thicker waist band look. Super simple but I like it and will enjoy wearing it.
