Over a week a go I posed a question on MoMoMod’s Facebook page: should I get rid of this dress or make it into a skirt?
Well, I was ready to get rid of the dress because it fell into the “items sitting in my closet that have never seen the light of day” category. After the Facebook post I went ahead and made the dress into a skirt.
I wore the skirt yesterday as my outfit 2 for our engagement photos.
While I do love how the skirt turned out, I’m reminding myself to make sure that my purchases make sense. Clearly this dress doesn’t make sense for a girl like me: top heavy, never wears anything sleeveless. The dress works as is. When I bought the dress I knew that I wouldn’t wear it with a shirt underneath because it would kill the initial style of the dress.
At any rate, I’m glad I was able to make use of the dress and I now have another fun birthday cake skirt!
(Note: I bought this dress over a year ago from H&M for $15; if you search eBay for H&M tulle dress, or even H&M dress, you might find it. I looked last week and I found three. Sadly they were all over $40.)
