Blue With Bows

This started life as a very pretty but extraordinarily unwearable skirt. Made of a super-soft linen (yay!), it was constantly riding down and falling off my hips (boo!). So in about 20 minutes, it's a fun summer dress.

Skirt to dress redo

I used a length of jersey like bias tape around the top, marked where my bra straps would be, and then sewed the same jersey to those places as straps.

I love the dress's reincarnation - looks great!
