Dress into Skirt TutorialReuse: Dress- one that is too short, or from thrift store
_First determine how you want your skirt to fit. I did mine at my waist.
_Cut the top of the dress down to make it the length you need. All mine needed were the straps taken off.
_Put the skirt on and mark how where it needs to be cut down on the sides.
_Cut down one seam (mine has a zipper on one side, so I cut the opposite side).
_Now, cut your skirt down to size. On my skirt, with the zipper on one side and pockets in front, I cut the BACK side down. If your skirt is just plain and simple, cut the FRONT & BACK.You just want to make sure it evens out - you don't want one side to be wider than the other, or the side seams will be in the wrong spot. Make sure to leave enough room for the 5/8" seams.
_Pin sides together.
_If you had to cut the top down, fold & pin each top side down to make a clean edge.
_Sew side seams (and top).
_Iron seams flat.
All done! How easy was that?! PLUS, it only cost me $6!!
