DIY :: Sewing :: Dress cropped into a skirt.

So there's this dress I bought because I love the pleated skirt...

In sections..

However I do not quite like the cut of the top part. I got this at a bargain and the quality wasn't as nice.

Here is what I'd like to keep. (This is how it's supposed to look after the alteration)

I love the brihht orange colour and the pleats.

So to atart with, I laid it out on a flat surface and decided where I want to start cutting.

This is the part I want to keep..

So I left an allowance and pullad the garter from the seams.

I started placing pins to keep the fabric in place; and a few hours later,
I turned this dress...

...into a skirt!:p


I haven't had the chance to wear it yet but I will.. soon! :D
