The Fastest Dress Refashion

Dear Readers. How are you? My refashion today is so easy it will be finished in a flash. I had a light weight sweater/shirt and a long skirt. I loved these blue and brown shades together, but I didn't think it was very flattering on me.

It started as an outfit that was too long. the skirt was SO long and the top was long too. It just dragged me down and made me look like half my normal height. (My normal height isn't very great to begin with, I don't need this outfit making me look shorter.)

In two easy steps I fixed the problems. First, I hiked the skirt up and wore it as a dress. It needed a belt but it fit much better. Next, I cut the sweater/shirt up the middle. It was a nice knit that didn't fray when it was cut. I also cut the sleeves into a shorter sleeve length.

I love it as a dress but I didn't like this rain very much. It was cold and damp out when I took this picture.

The sweater is nice and easy to wear by itself too. And what happened to those cut off sleeves?

And it's still raining.

They made quick and easy boot cuffs. They add a touch of color. The part that shows is the finished end of the sleeve, I cut it to the length I needed to fit comfortably in my boots. The raw edges didn't fray when cut so it was 

And now we're done. I told you it was going to be quick and easy. Thanks for reading, now go make something fun for yourself.


  1. Very creative. I have clothing in my closet that needs a facelift too. Maybe I'll be able to come up with a plan to make them more flattering like you did. Thanks for the inspiration.
