I've been so inspired by all the refashioning going on in blogland. So fun!! After I made this skirt for my daughter and brainstormed it into a dress instead, I got to thinking...
When I was at our local consignment store I found this skirt.
I turned them, sewed closed the bottom, and top stitched all the way around the edges.
I put the dress on my daughter and pinned on the straps.
Then I hand stitched the straps on the inside at the base and an inch higher too for added strength and stability.
I decided it would be fun to dress it up a little with a flower!
I cut 2 strips of fabric and sewed down one edge with a long gathering stitch.
Then I pulled the thread and gathered it up tight and sewed the edges closed.
Even better than I imagined!
