Upcycled Robin’s Egg Blue Dress

Back in May I road-tested a vintage blue dress. I liked the dress but the elastic at the sleeves was dying and it was sewn in such a way that I thought it would be hard to replace. Add to that a stain I found on the bodice, and I just didn’t think I could wear the dress anymore.

So I turned it into a skirt.

Top: Smart Set
Skirt: Vintage, repurposed
Shoes: Payless

First I measured 10 inches from the hem and pinned along that line. then I cut off the excess material. I cut off the top half of the dress too. I had intentions of hemming it but it’s not fraying yet, so I’ll leave it unfinished for now.

blue and yellow

I paired my new skirt with a multi-colored top. I like the reds and yellows in the top and think they go well with robin’s egg blue. That said, I can’t wait to wear a purple top with this skirt or a simple white T.
