Refashion || Summer dress to skirt
And I wear skirts more often than dresses, so refashioning the article was the obvious choice. Follow my tutorial if you have a similar dilemma. (And yes, I am aware that I am in desperate need of a body form!)
What you'll need for the project:A sundress
Elastic at the width for your waist (or where you'd like the skirt to sit)
How to refashion the dress:Lay the dress on a flat surface and cut off the bodice as close to the seam as possible. Mark the centres of the back and front with a pin.
Finally, fold over the elastic so that you cannot see it and stitch the seam closed.
