We hacked up the dress and came out with a skirt!
Doesn’t look much different but in reality it took about 3 hours to get it where it is now! This picture shows the waistband treatment.
We put in two exposed side zippers. I had to take in the waist A LOT! And I added lace to the bottom of the hem.
I feel like it’s still a little big in the waist. And the waistband could have a bit more interfacing. But overall, if she likes it, I’m calling it a success!
