I’m Addicted!

June 28, 2009

Ok, so you are probably sick of hearing me talk about my skirt-to-dress transformations, but I have yet another one! I’m officially addicted!

I wrote about my first one here and the second one here.

I’m a very amateur seamstress and this is actually the first project that I completed all by myself, with no help from my mom. Hubs bought me a sewing machine for my birthday and, I must say, I think I’ve found a new hobby!

Here’s the skirt (it was cute, but made me look like a hippo – not good)…

And here’s the final result!


I took the side seam in and used the leftover lace from the hem for the straps. So easy and cute!
