Repurposed dress

I wore a jersey dress the other day and decided it didn't really do anything for me. I was about to pull it off and pop it into the charity bin bag but when I got it up to my hips I looked in the mirror and realised it would be much better as a top!

So I headed downstairs into the playroom (which also doubles as my craft room) and grabbed the scissors - a few snips later and I'd cut off the belt loops and sliced the dress in half at the hip line.

I hemmed the 'top' for me and repurposed the skirt with a new casing and elastic for my daughter Romily - she loves her 'new' skirt and I now have a nice new top.
