I recently unearthed this ankle-length black rayon/polyester/lycron skirt [which I believe my mother purchased at Goodwill yeeeeeaars ago, and I failed to ever wear it]. With a little effort, this Old Navy drab will soon become a bit more fab.
Before placing the skirt on the dress form, I first wore the skirt and played around with the styling. I instantly raised the skirt, and brainstormed ideas for a dress.
The skirt is beginning to resemble a dress...
I found a skinny black leather western belt.
The cinched waist creates a romper look for the dress - loose, cute, and comfortable for sunny days.
Issues - A high slit in back and gaping zipper on side.
Proposal - Remedy the slit with a black/black pattern material and insert a skinny elastic band for top of dress.
Stay tuned for my attempt to transform drab to fab!
