Thrifty Thursday: old dress new skirt

Why I’ve had this dress so long, I don’t really know. (seriously what is my problem?)  I guess it’s because I love it so much.  I’ve never even worn it!  Can you believe that?  Every time I clean out my closet somehow this dress stayed.  I almost wore it as a wedding dress too.

A friend in high school gave this to me.  Her sister bought it at a thrift store for a prom dress.   I’m guessing that happened about 14 t0 15 years ago.  I decided to up-cycle it into a skirt.  The top half was made for less endowed ladies than myself, so I gave it to the girls to add to their dress up collection.  Everybody’s happy now.

Of course I cut it before the picture…sorry.  Mama brain was off-duty. Don’t you love the fabric?
