Amanda has a pretty eyelet sundress she loves. She could wear it so many different ways; a shirt under it, a cardigan over it, or a shirt over it as a skirt. But it was getting too short and we had already let out the straps as much as we could.
I was about to pass it down to Emilee when I had a great idea. Since it has a shirred elastic waist I decided to cut off the top of the dress and convert it to a skirt.
I was going to sew around the top of the skirt but Amanda liked how it looked so I just left it unfinished. It hasn’t unraveled a bit.
She wore it to church today so I made her come outside to model it for me.
It looks really cute with the leather belt and boots.
A view of the back.
And one more picture as Amanda was twirling like a little girl. Now she has a pretty eyelet skirt to last her a few more years. I’m going to be looking for more outgrown sundresses to transform into cute skirts.
