Well, when I got home I realized that this cute knit dress was incredibly short. So it sat on my sewing table for a few weeks and then I saw a great tutorial at Mimi G’s on how to sew up a knit pencil skirt. I grabbed that knit dress and cut it right at the armpits. And then I used Mimi G’s tutorial for her waistband. I simply cut my 1 inch wide elastic waistband to my waist measurement. I then sewed it into a circle and pinned it in four spots at the top of my hacked off knit dress. And lastly, I serged the elastic, stretching it as I went to fit the top of my new skirt.
Not bad for a $3 dress turned skirt!
