48 Days to Go: Lizzy's NDAD Creation

Hope everyone's weekend is off to a smashing start!!  Today's remake comes from Lizzy...

I was shopping at DI looking for a dress I had seen a few days prior when this blue little number caught my eye.  It was a little pricey, $8, I know... but I splurged ;) I always love repurposing things that have pleats already in them since I hate sewing and pressing pleats!

It feels like a graduation gown-dress!!  I wonder what Miss Lizzy will do...

I decided the bottom of the dress would make an adorable maxi skirt!  I cut off the top, added 3/4" elastic for the waistband, and voila!

Turquoise maxi skirt ready for summer!"

Did you dye this too Lizzy?  Or was the coloring different in the sun?  It turned out gorgeous - what a fab skirt for summer and something to wear with some boots for the fall!!  Love what you did girl :)
