I cut the dress right at the armpits and used a combination of Susan’s and Tania’s skirt tutorials to create the waistband. You can tell I didn’t use a step-by-step tutorial because it looks horrible up close.
I’m wearing a maroon scarf (gift from a blog friend), American Apparel white shirt ($10 – buy it!), Old Navy brown belt ($10 – buy it!), Forever 21 maxi dress-turned-maxi skirt ($5), and Target clog sandals(gift from my in-laws) with a vintage Gucci bucket bag ($3).
