Upside down maxi dress

Here’s my first attempt at recycling a RTW garment.


I love shirring and we’ve had our end of summer sales. At Tightrope they had stacks of shirred maxi dresses for $10. I wanted a top that had shirring on the hips so I bought a maxi dress that had shirring around the bust, cut it in half, turned it upside down and then created the neckline and armholes.


The shirring is now on my hips.


I played with the armholes a bit to make sure you couldn’t get a side view of what’s beneath the top. My cousin’s who know I’m a dag, found it amusing. Maybe I’ve now got some design cred?
The left over fabric will be used for a top shortly.
Tomorrow I’m cycling training so that’s it for now.
