Day 351: Egyptian Papyrus Skirt to Dress Refashion 1
Do you see the potential in this?

Okay.  So the cut of this skirt is ridonkulously boring and the length is lousy, but check out that print!  It’s delightful and perfect for a warm (but not too warm) South Carolina evening.  🙂

Don’t look at it as what it is.  Look at it as what it could be (Good advice for refashioning/terrible advice for romantic relationships)!  🙂

I put my skirt on my dress form, using the button closure as a sleeve-y strappy thing to go over one arm.  Then, I pinned where this left that side open to make it fitted.  🙂

Taking it in!

I ran this through my machine to make a single seam.

Then, I lopped of the extra fabric, and tossed on my new dress to go out & about for the evening!  🙂
