gettin' crafty: wardrobe refashion

i have taken up a challenge to reduce, reuse, and save a little cash by refashioning old clothes i already have or that i pick up at thrift stores. i will be signing my official pledge for 2 months of clothes refashioning mid august. for 2 months starting sept. 1 i will refashion my wardrobe and make no new purchases.
i'm cheating just a little in that i am starting my refashioning projects now so that a: they will be ready to start the school year and b: because i have time now and won't later.
picked this dress up at helping hands. it is a classic "grandma" dress, but the print is a watercolor style flower that is everywhere right now.
shortened it, took the top off, and made a sash for the waist.

option 2: wear a long top pulled over waist.
