Turning a Dress into a Skirt
During my Maxi dress/skirt kick this year, one of my pet peeves has been all of the halter style dresses that I wish were a skirt instead. There have been so many cute colors and prints, but halter dresses have never been my style.
About a month ago, I noticed one of the moms at my daughter's school in a darling printed skirt. When I inquired where she bought it, she informed me that it was a Kmart dress that she just cut the top off. Instant skirt!
While cutting the dress, I carefully came close to the elastic waist part because I wanted to get as much length out as I could. It is still long on me, so I roll it about two times at my waist and wear a longer tee to cover up the waist.
Dress/Skirt: Kmart Dream Out Loud Selena Gomez Junior's Maxi dress in Paisley.
Shirt: Anthropologie Deletta Gathering tank. Older.
Shoes: Payless Montego Bay Club wedges about four years old.
