I am so proud of myself for the outfit below. The skirt is a quick DIY. Not a project, just an alteration. This skirt used to be a dress. I bought it from Old Navy (on clearance of course) because I wanted to get in on the floral trend. I wasn't sure if I could get in on this particular trend because florals all over the place just aren't my thing. But this dress had just the perfect amount of flowers on it for me.
I got the dress home and tried it on, only to find out that the chest was not roomy enough. It sat in my closet until this weekend when I look at it and thought to myself... "I may as well donate it." I decided to tried it on again. This time, without pulling the top part over my neck. Wah-lah!!! I couldn't find a pair of scissors fast enough! I cut off the top portion of the dress, and with the help of my daughter and her sewing machine, there you have it! A cute skirt.
This experience taught me, just because that's the way it is in the store, it doesn't have to be the way you wear it. Make it work for you.
Until next time...
