I love the fabric of this dress. It’s the whole reason I bought it! However, the style and length weren’t quite my style.
I have a friend who started following my blog since day 1…I made her a cute silky top from the bottom portion of the dress.
So, I chopped the whole bottom portion of the dress, pinned and hemmed it.
Next, I created a neckline and sleeves by adding two small stitches at the top of the shirt (what was the bottom of the skirt). The skirt was wide enough that I was able to create the neckline and sleeves from the whole bottom portion instead of cutting arm holes on the sides.
Now, it’s a beautiful silky top!
