Easy make: skirt from old dress

In a vintage shop in Amsterdam I found this dress in the discount pile. The top had some holes, but the skirt still looked fine and fitted perfectly.

At home I cut off the top, put some stitches at the top of the zip so it would stay put and technically the skirt was ready to wear. However I found it a bit too short so I added a white border at the bottom to give it a bit more length.

Voila from a shabby old dress to a brand new skirt in less than half an hour!

Ps. Who else is excited Downton Abbey has started again, my perfect watch while crafting.
