Dress hack #1
As daggy as it looked, and in spite of it's suspect stains, I couldn't pass it up; check out the print.
Hot air balloons! If I was the type, I would've squee-ed with excitement.
I gave it a good wash, and the chocolate stain came out, but not the grease stain. But that didn't matter, because my intention as soon as I spotted it was to cut it down into a skirt. Front waistband, elastic back, I kept the button band down the front as a feature (I may change the buttons as they are a blerky, chalky-looking pink and not very stylin'), but its not functional as the waistband doesn't separate. It's a basic pull-on skirt (or at least it will be when the rest of this baby weight has been shed), nothing too fancy and complicated about it.
It's all rather boring, actually. I just wanted everyone to know that I have a skirt with hot air balloons on it. So there.
