This is another dress from my friends daughters goodwill pile.
This is such a cute dress ... but NOT on me! lol
I am completely in love with the print!!! Look at these adorable little seagulls!
I originally tried to work with the existing gather and just add an elastic band to make a skirt, but that was a total bust.
I decided to completely direct the skirt and ended up with a ton of fabric to work with.
I kept it real simple. I cut two panels that were a few inches larger than my hips on each side. Sewed the panels together. I created a casing on the top for the elastic and hemmed the bottom.
Viola! Super simple, easy skirt with adorable seagulls!
