A friend asked if I could take a strapless dress of hers that was collecting dust in her closet cause it wasn't comfortable and turn it into a skirt. She gave me a favorite a-line skirt of hers to use as a reference for shape and size.
Here are my journal pages...and a few snapped photos as I went through the process...
The skirt given to me as the reference (pattern):
the strapless dress (w/empire waist tie):
First step...removing the waistline tie, and cutting the tube top off the dress... then cutting up both skirt sides following the a-line shape 5/8" out (room for seam allowance)
folding down top of skirt about an inch to an 1 1/4" and pin for waistline casing allowance
And the skirt...
fun idea to transform something you don't wear into something you will! better than tossing it out!
