Making Dresses Into Skirts

I have two dresses that Ionly worn like twice with a cardigan because it is too revealing.  The magenta color dress  is  very opretty but  it has a very low neckline.  I really love the bottom part of it but since it has a revelaing  cleavage, I can't really enjoy  it.  For a flat chested like me, this kind of dress is not sexy lol.  

The second one is also gorgeous but it has the same problem as the first one.  I fot this as a prize on a contest.  Sp to make it work, I thought of making it into skirts.  It was easy turning them into skirts.  All I needed  was an inch  size garter for the wasteline and voila, I have two skirts to wear this summer.
Okay, I am trying to find tops that would look good with these skirts.  Tell me your ooinion, you can be as honest as possible with it.  You can also give me your suggestion on what would look good.  The first one pairing wuld still  work  for Spring since it is still cold here in our neck of the woods.  
 I have this floral print bloue that I bought when I was still in the Philippines and thought it would look nice.  Do you think, it would look alright with a red shoes?
 II am not sure if green works with his magenta color but I would like to try anyways.  I wish that my Blowfish shoes fits, it is an inch  longer than my feet!
 Okay, here is the second skirt.  I think  the blue top would look alright.  I can't really  wear it  with out a cardigan because  this is the kind of top that is short, half-tee as they call it.
 How about this mustrard color top, would this look alright with the skirt?
Okay, for a more relaxed  pair, another blue top and a red  flats.  
I am not  good with fashion, in fact my fashion style is (out of style?) lol.  So your honest opinion will matter.  I am more on  comfort than style but sometimes, it wouldn't hurt a 42 year old Momma to wear stylish  outfits right?  Come on, speak up your mind.  Thank you!

  1. I remember doing this when I was a kid, but haven't really done it in a while. I am always cold and 99% of my dresses are strapless or have spaghetti straps, so I usually have a cardigan on anyways that covers the top.

  2. I used to do that when I was in high school. It's a great way to make something new out of an existing outfit. You look GREAT, by the way!

  4. I love that you did this. They are so pretty!! My favorite is the blue top and red shoes with the more abstract skirt. And I preferred the floral print blouse with the burgundy skirt.

  5. I can't believe how creative you are, those skirts are too cute and it was a great idea. I love each of the tops with the skirts, you could mix and match for a new look each time.

  10. Whenever I a travel to a locale and I am limited in my luggage space I do that trick too. I convert my dress into a skirt by simply pulling it down! No one ever suspects! :)

  20. What a creative idea! I love how you transformed the dresses into skirts to make them more versatile and modest. I love them both, but on you I think the bottom is my favorite with the gray sweater :)

  23. LOVE the floral top with the magenta skirt, but I would go with those grey heels you have in the pic with the green shirt/magenta skirt.

  26. This is such a great way to recycle the dresses you do not wear any more. I will have to check my closet to see if i have some dresses i can convert.

  29. I love the idea of turning a dress into a skirt. There are some dresses I have from being pregnant that just don't fit anymore.

  30. I am loving the last look. I think you wore that one best.

    ReplyDelete

  32. Very cool! I don't have those kinds of skills. You did a great job.

  33. I love the skirts. I often do the same thing with dresses. As for what looks good together, my styles sense is awful so I can't really comment on that . But you look great in my opinion.

  34. I think you look great. I have thought about doing this before but I never have the right top for the bottom. It is an awesome idea though. Sometimes I just like the bottom part of a dress and not the top ya know lol.
