Wonderful White

Stopped by the local thrift store a few weeks ago. I hadn't been in for a few months, I'm not buying much in the way of clothing these days. I simply don't want to spend more than a few cents on anything when I can do a bag sale for $3. (Plus I'm refashioning what I have.) However as soon as I saw this skirt I had to have it! For $2.50 I knew I'd be saving about $25.00 once I turned it into a dress for Rubes. So off came the bottom ruffle and the lace trim on the waist. I love my seam ripping tool. Then I took out the zipper and seam that ran the lenght of the skirt from there. Took off about 6 inches round the waist and sewed it back together. A little bit of elastic and some gathering in the back.

Made 2 ties from the removed fabric and attached them to the top to create a halter top neckline. Reattached the lace from the waist also to the neckline. Tah Dah! A wonderful white summer dress!
Perfect for twirling. I wonder how long it will stay white?
