When I saw this little skirt at my local thrift store, I couldn't believe how cute it was, and I immediately knew what I wanted to do with it. And now I want to show you what I did.
Isn't it just gorgeous? I love the ice-cream layers with the cherries-on-the-top red stripes.
I have a favorite bodice that would work just perfectly for what I wanted to do,
so I folded the skirt in half lengthwise and pinned the bodice to it. I knew I wanted the bodice to end at the first red stripe, so I positioned it where the armholes would be above that.
...with a sash that took me almost as long to make as the dress. Total time involved including the sash, 35 minutes.
