This outfit was ideal for those extremely hot days we had been experiencing out her in Madrid, until very recently... (Yes, my hair was wet when I took this photo)... :)
However, believe it or not, this skirt, (which I totally love), started life as a halter-neck maxi-dress.
But the bust bit didn´t fit as it was too small.
But I loved it so much... I took a close look at the stitching, and quickly realized, I could easily remove the halter-neck bit, and convert it into a beautiful maxi-skirt. Once I figured a way to make this thing work for me, I was not going to leave the shop without it. Especially for just 9 euros!
I´m just in love with the pattern of this material!
I´m glad I got it now!
Yes, I know, removing something from something isn´t the most exciting DIY blog post. But this is a girl who doesn´t DIY on items of clothing out of fear of destroying them. This time, I did it, and I´m happy with result I got! Woo!
