Tulle Bike Ride

Did you ever buy a piece of clothing because you really liked one part but you really weren't so excited about the rest of it?  Well this skirt that I am wearing was originally a dress and I made it into this sweet tulle skirt.  I really loved the dual colored tulle bottom of the dress but the top part was like a really bad 80's prom dress.  Can you just picture how scary and horrible that was?! Yikes!  As I bought the dress on a really good clearance sale I was trying to figure out a way to hide the top part.  I thought maybe I could wear a top or a blazer over it but that really didn't work as it was quite detailed on top and it looked really big and lumpy underneath anything.  Looking big and lumpy isn't the look that I was going for so I decided to make it into a cute tulle skirt.  I am not really that good at sewing DIY's but I wanted to make an attempt!  I remade the zipper since it was the entire way up the back of the dress and then I sewed a new waistband.  I am quite proud of how it turned out as I think it makes the perfect little tulle skirt!  Do you find ways to save pieces of clothing by making them into something new too?

Yes! I'll see a dress I like but they'll be one part of it that I don't like... so I won't buy it! Fantastic job on the dress/skirt. I love, love tulle so I can see why you loved the bottom. The colours are gorgeous. Great look! xo, Jackie www.stylemydreams.wordpress.com

That dress gone skirt is just the cutest thing ever, those were my favorite colors when I was a child, so the fact that's a tulle skirt just brought that part in me! It happens to me all the time, I like this but I don't like that so I always end up altering stuff. The pictures are adorable! Cee. ? Code Overdressed
