Skirt From a Dress - Brown and Green - Fun!

Hello Crafty People!

     Happy Friday! It was certainly happy for me because my Salvation Army had its storewide 50% off sale today. Yaaaay! I picked up lots of new project stuff. And, the smokin-est deal was my suede jacket with sweater sleeves for only 5 dollars. Loving this jacket and I expect to get a lot of use from it as the weather gets colder.

$5.00 Suede Jacket!
     One of the great things I got today was a super cute tank dress in brown with a ruffle near the bottom and some really cool embroidery.

     This didn't need much. It already has an elastic waist. I cut the top off, staying close to the elastic. The dress was lined and the lining wasn't attached to the skirt so I hand sewed the lining on to the elastic. Really, the only reason I hand sewed was so I could hang out on the sofa and watch tv..... I don't know yet what I will do with the embroidered part.

     I plan to wear this with a lime tank and a brown cardi. This skirt is so comfy and I think it skims over my hips and bootie just right. Can't wait to wear it next week.
I also cannot wait to get started on my other projects!
Happy Crafting!
