WiW 04.25 - From Frumpy Dress to Pretty Skirt!

From the donation pile, I salvaged this dress! I loved the fabric and the pattern, but it had a terrible top part! So, I just kept the bottom half!

I need to make it slightly smaller, but that will be an easy fix I think!

My sewing machine is awesome!

    A fun floral skirt for Spring. How do you feel about wearng sheer black hose?

    That is an interesting idea! I probably will swap to bare legs next week (+20!) but I'll have to get something more summery soon!
