Dress to Skirt and shirt - Refashion

I saw this cute dress in Savers and immediately saw it's potential.  The bottom of it was screaming SKIRT to me and it was wide enough to make one to fit me where the dress would have been way too small.

I laid the dress out and cut the bottom off leaving just enough to sew a gathering stitch where I could adjust the width to fit  my waist and attach it to some wide elastic.

This was so simple to do, I don't think I am even need to explain it.  Now I can't wait until spring so I can wear it!

So as to not waste anything, I hemmed the bottom of the top portion and turned it into a cute summer top for my daughter.  It fits her perfectly.  (bad photo, the color is all wrong)
