Today's dress should look familiar to you guys! It's the same one I used for Day 22!
There was tons of gorgeous lace on this number...
...as well as those fab sleeves that I kept intact on Day 21...
But there was still a whole lot of material leftover and I just couldn't let that go to waste!
Using the whole bottom of the dress, I added a seam at the top of the remnant material. I left a larger seam allowance here and threaded elastic all the way around. This former skirt was now going to be worn at my shoulders, so I did a little cinching to get the perfect length that would keep this new top up!
There were two seams straight down on each side of the skirt - I measured where my arms would be and I opened about 7 inches worth of fabric to create armholes. I then stitched down the raw edges securing the new armholes in place.
So what do you think????
I paired my new poncho with some skinny grey jeans and wedges, however this could have totally worked as a summery frock or bathing suit cover up!
It's so fun!!!
And honestly, I had a camisole underneath, but you could use this to layer on top of a long sleeved shirt to give it a little pizazz, or just wear a bra!
I'm so happy that I used every part of this dress to craft two seriously awesome pieces!!!
21 days til I do!
