From Dress to Skirt

Found this cute sun dress at Target and fell in love with the prairie style and the vintage looking fabric, but when I tried it on it was to short.  So I decided to buy it anyway.
I brought it home, cut off the bra section, turned the raw edge over, serged the seam and added some elastic.
It is now long enough and took about 20 minutes to make over.
Don’t you just love the vintage feel to the fabric?

    I would love if you came and linked this project to my clothes upcycling page. It has a long term linky, so your project would stay there for more than just the week of a usual linky. We have over 80 projects linked up now – some fantastic ideas – and this month I’m upcycling lots of clothes and trying to feature lots of the links too!
    Do come and take a look!
