Wardrobe Refashion: Summer Skirt

Once again I have delved into my own closet to spruce up my wardrobe. Today it is a dress I've had for years and seldom wear. 

It's super cute but halter and me don't get along. Whenever I wore this dress I wore it with a thin tshirt underneath (so I could wear a real bra!)  I figured I'd get more use out of it as a skirt.

I took off the halter top and re-hemmed the edge. I took the halter straps and added them to each side seam so I get a bow in the back. It's high waisted, a bit retro and super wearable! I've already worn it more than I ever did as a dress. 

*my dress form is quite a bit smaller than me so it looks a bit gappy from the back.

I've pulled a few other items from my closet that are going to get a refresher. In particular I  looking to make some travel friendly pieces for my big trip to Vanuatu in a couple months. I've got loads of travel craft ideas saved so whether you are traveling abroad or road tripping to Grandma's I'll have some projects coming up that might float your boat!
