Sleeveless Ladies Dresses Into Girls Skirts

I was looking through some clothes the other night at my mother-in-law's house that had been handed down to her, and there were a few dresses that I wouldn't wear because of the tops but I thought they would be great for Zoi as skirts. They were just the right length that I like to see on her. So I took them and prayed that God would show me how to make them work. Here is what I decided to do with them.

Turn the top under and sew down with a zig zag the clip off the extra part.

Same here.

This one I just folded the top over a second time and then did the zig zag
so that I didn't have to cut any extras off since there was extra room.

This one cinched up good with the belt that came with it. It also covered the
stitching good too. I just tacked the belt on in a few places so that she
could make it work easily.

This one cinched up great without taking it in.

I made a little mistake with this one but I will work on it.

What have you refashioned?

Today we went to a party and shared our post. Maybe you would like to visit as well.

Wow, very nice! Those skirts are super cute.

I have changed a swingy tank top into a skirt for my little girl, and I cut down a pajama top for my son. Both were hand-me-downs. It make me happy when people bring me their old clothes!
