My new dress
Here is the dress I made this week.
Basically, I took a lacy black tshirt from the thrift store, cut some excess of the bottom, attached a piece of big black elastic, and sewed on a skirt I made out of a thrift store skirt! I didn't really like the neckline on the shirt, so I expanded it a little. I would have loved a v-neck, but this was my first foray into sewing with knit fabric, and I didn't trust my skills not to mess it up when I want to wear it tonight.
You might recognize the fabric here, where I used the top of the original skirt to make an adorable wristlet, which no one seemed to want to buy. I considered that a sign that I was meant to keep it for myself!
I loved the original skirt, but it was a smidge too tight for me. So now I get to have it as a bag and a dress!
I need to find more cute tops to make more of these!
