Ways to Wear: Refurbished Floral Dress, Part 1

awkward photos from freshman year of me wearing the dress

I’ve had this Pac Sun dress for about three years now. When I first got it, it was really cute, but it ended up shrinking in the wash and being an awkward too long to be a shirt/too short to be a dress thing. It cinched at my ribs instead of my waist and I avoided wearing it.

3I absolutely love the pattern, so I decided to refurbish it and make it a bandeau and a skirt. All I did was cut it above between the two elastics. This made it so the skirt part would stay up (and be a skirt).
