this tutorial. The original piece was a too-big dress that I picked up for a dollar at a yard sale. I tried to alter it into a skirt for me but was unhappy with the result. The new dress is made from the skirt and the ties are made from the band that went around the top. When I finished, I still had some pieces left that I wanted to do something with.
I would defiantly make us matching stuff again, I will just plan ahead to have enough fabric!
