I took in the sides and waistband of the skirt so it could fit at my waist. I also altered it to be more fitted because it was an A-line skirt. I attached it to the tee and inserted wide elastic into the waistband. I also made my own button strip to go over the ruffles.
I love turning old items into new items... not to mention it hardly cost me anything.
I found my receipt and here's what I bought:
- Four buttons- $1.95
- Black T-shirt from the fabulous Fahion-Q ;) - $5.00
- Wide elastic- $0.89
- Some purple/grey chiffon for the bib- $1.00
(Joann's coupons factored in) And Voila! A new sophisticated and fun dress for under ten dollars!
