My sister gave me this casual cotton dress back a while ago.
I wore it a few times, mainly as lounge clothes up at our cabin. I felt frumpy in it, so I decided it was time to figure something out with it so I would enjoy wearing it. I cut the top part completely off, turned it inside out & slipped it on as a skirt. I then pinned down the sides to get it to form to my body to create a pencil skirt. I may eventually do an elastic waist, but for now I left the top edges raw. It is always under shirts or under a belt, so it's not a big deal right now.
I did want to show a new concept today with my item-outfit put together. I wanted to show how you can take an inspiration picture, like this one I found on Pinterest.
The idea was really cute & different, but the black doesn't work for me. So I took the inspiration & made it work for me
I used the skirt I made that is brown & cream small stripe, brown leggings & my cream sweater. The original picture had a plain scarf, but I needed color & texture, so I made that the pop of my outfit. Something I do often & love to do is put bracelects over my long sleeves. I was excited to see this picture do that.
In the future, look for more inspiration challenge posts. It is a great way to step out of the box of what you would normally select to wear, and I am all about trying new things!
