I was looking at Pinterest for ideas. I saw all these cute, full, loose dresses… I almost hit my forehead and said, “I coulda had a V8!” Lol  😀

This is a skirt that has a wrap-around top, to be tied in the back.

I had the perfect skirt for this! It was really intended to be a dress with the extra fabric at the top to be wrapped around one’s chest and tied in the back, but I always wore it as a skirt.

So, I just pulled the waist up above my chest and tied it behind my neck! like a halter, making a cowl neck. A stroke of genius! Thanks, Lord!

So, THIS IS A NO-SEW PROJECT…SO EASY!!

Simply add a cute hat, a fun, statement necklace, earrings and bracelets, a peek-a-boo petticoat, and shoes—optional! Lol

  • One will have elastic or drawstring at the top for the waist—for the skirt part;
  • One you will also draw snug with elastic or drawstring—for the top part of what is becoming a 2-piece dress. And, give it shoulder straps. Mine, I made of wide ribbon.

I used a colorful drawstring, a.k.a long shoestring 😀 .
