Life is Beautiful: DIY: scallop dress into a scallop skirt

DIY: scallop dress into a scallop skirt



I found this dress at a thrift store during my N.Y trip last year.   Right when I laid my eyes on it, I knew it'd look great as an A-line skirt, with the beautiful scallop details and the ribbon trim.



BEFORE:
I cut the top part off and used the criss-cross straps as a waist-band for the skirt.
sewed the two straps into a one long strap to make the waist band.




AFTER:
blouse | necklace | skirt: DIY | flats


Estimated Time:  45 minutes
Skill Level:  intermediate 
Price: $7.00
