Skirt to Dress Transformation

My sister recently had a clear out of her clothes, and I was lucky enough to inherit this skirt...

I love the floral pattern, and I knew immediately what I would do with it...

 I attached two strips of black cotton tape to make straps, and rethreaded the dried up elastic.

I made a really simple but effective belt from a strip of wide black elastic and a black cummerbund clip. (Seriously, so easy.)

And... Hello new summer dress!

Thanks again to my wonderful husband for the photos :)
And May the Fourth be with You! Sorry today isn't Star Wars themed, I think I'm still all geeked out from the last couple of months...


  1. Love your dress! What a good idea! Clever you. I'll be raiding wardrobes to make one of my own! Love Katie X

    1. Thank you! I hope you find a suitable skirt to use :)

  2. What a creative idea! I really like the belt. I've been on a belt kick lately, but have a hard time finding belts that are cute and stretchy. Thanks for linking up to my blog! I've been enjoying looking around at your blog posts. :)

  3. Great refashion, Helen!!! The fabric is gorgeous.
