Motivational Dress

So a few days before our busyness began, I realized that my current sewing project was not going to be completed when I wanted it to be. I had recently been given a bag of clothing from a friend and after going through the bag I found several things that I wanted to "up-cycle". Before Pinterest I would have never known what that word meant so if you are not familiar with the term it means that you are using old clothing (or other older used items) to make something new. In this bag I found a shirt and skirt that I thought I could use for something. I forgot to take pictures of them separate, but remembered after I pinned them together before I cut and sewed.

I decided to cut off the skirt and re-hem it and sew it to the top and add a belt. I am going to add some belt loops as soon as I remember where I placed the leftover fabric, but for now here is the finished project.

I can't wait to wear it! Motivation to lose the "baby weight".


  1. You can do it, Boog! (The dress looks beautiful!)

  2. I loved that skirt but hardly ever had the occasion to wear how you up-cycled it!

  3. WOW! Great Job! so stylish and trendy! You will look so pretty! Love the red belt!
